I will stand back and love
you from afar, you choose it
to be that way. My nearness to
you brings pangs of distress
and calamity in my thoughts.

Our movement as one in union
has become sluggish and rare.
We must at this time maintain
and co-exist in the same footage
but apart in our routines.

I have fought to bring us
together to dance life's games
but you tug and pull at the
ropes so as to maintain your own
ground of existance.

You show no invitation for me
to come in, and no ground rules
do you lay.There is no convenance
of your thoughts of any form.

I have no control over your
capacities nor do you of mine,but
in sharing we could walk as one soul
striving for the same mark together.

No one should put limits on the
affections of another,there are limits
that can be reached were love cannot
sustain its forgiving forse.

I hope that you do not cross over
that threshold into nothingness. It
has to be a union of two and the
desire to conquer to become one.

 I love you
Is all that you can't say-
Years gone by and still...
Words don't come easily
Like I love you, I love you...
But you can say baby...
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you'd be mine...

This a poem that I think many of us can relate to.
I have actually been in this position where I have tried and tried to make a union, but the other person just stubborn, In my own experiences I have learned that you cannot make people do what you want them to, maybe they arent ready for the commitment, and maybe they will never be ready for the commitment. I will say this, don't wait around forever for people like this because they will end up hurting you bad. If things aren't progressing, your best bet is to move on.

"Noone should put limits on the affections of another". This was a really good line.
Missed reading this when first posted. So,
I now kick it to the top because it's so good.

Hi every one, WOW, WOW again,

Where were all of you special souls during the times in my life that I have walked alone. I have to say something, yes at some time in my life each poem I have written has had a reason behind it, but I have to say I'm not going throught most of the stuff I post at this time, But I love all of your thoughts. Yes my life is something but sence I have been reading as many post as I can My mind has never been so peaceful.


Thank you so much, Cerenity

There is much truth in this poem. And you express it so well and so openly. I feel that if one rejects the notion of being together, it is meant to be that way. And sometimes the heart recognizes love that the spirit doesn't (only personal belief). I could go on about this subject, but no one would agree or be interested. But I like this poem and the depth of it. Excellent.

Well Said!

I have read and re-read your poem several times while considering how to respond. From 18 years of marriage, I don't see the effect as hate, rejection, or limitations. Rather, I experience the dilema as cold indifference. I think I could deal much better with either passionate love or passionate hate. Indifference is indeed a vacuum of perpetual frustration.
