Love escapes that fantasy dream,
Iíve held for many a years-
Drown out by my solitude,
Filled with a mountain of tears.

No longer do I hope of dreams,
Or wish upon those stars-
For yesterday hid my love-
With your ever -bitter remarks.

No longer do I fear alone
Or wish for two of a kind-
This heart knows too much pain-
And reasoning escapes my mind.

To fill the void of loveís despair,
Iíll reap this storm of pain-
Wrap arms safely about myself-
Throughout this rugged terrain.

So hurt me no further,
When I cannot be enough-
Leave me be this time-
So much for dreams of love.



 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

The image of wrapping one's arms safely 'round oneself was positively brilliant, devina.  I have been here ...

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Very well written Devina.  I have been questioning some of my relationships lately, are they real or only a fantasy?   James

devina I know exactly how you feel.  This is how I felt after leaving my ex-fiancee.  But time heals the wounds we never thought would.

Alright - I guess it's my turn to try and "heal" you.  devina, you are a very soft and sensitive person.  People take advantage of this type for whatever selfish reasons but that's not reason to change.  There is a beauty to your openess of heart...and believe me, there is nothing but grief awaiting when you close that off.  Never stop dreaming, devina...what purpose to life would their be without it?

devina, your such a precious soul. There is a truer love out there for you... or maybe in here...  
Come and visit Toronto, I'll show you the CN Tower... Its the largest free standing structure in the world... for some reason women just stand around it just staring...
must be a women thing.

Devina~
Now, girlfriend ...
with all the 'volunteers'
standing in line with a *hug* ...
spread those arms open wide
and share a *hug*.

Be all you can be ....
I like your *SMILE*

Dreams don't die Devina. . . we kill them. . . they will always survive within us. . .

Let your heart sing Devina. . . I know its song. . .share it with me, with us. .. we long to hear it. . .

And, on your way to Toronto, stop off here in Michigan for a visit. . . you'd really like it here. . .

Keep your hope and keep chasing your dreams, Devina.  They will come true if you truly believe.    Exellent poem.

   "The old dreams were good dreams
      they didn't ever happen
      but I'm glad I had them".
This line was from "Bridges of Madison county".
Keep those dreams my dear, one never knows what awaits the next heartbeat.

Sad again but so well written is this poem you done
I'm very possitive and certain "There got to be someone"
Your heart should not be broken, that much I do know
Well done sweet


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
