~What a Heart Cant See~

Love no longer sees me, here where in I stand,
hearts that once felt promise, now feel chained by this gold band.
Eyes that fail to recognize ... the changes this hearts been thru ...
she's not the same scared woman, that he once knew.

Two hearts becoming lost in the distance ...
the space in between grows wide,
in time so much had faded away ... falling into this great divide.
How does this happen, is neglect the only one to blame,
this heart still remembers when they shared so much more than a name.

So many questions go unanswered ...
or maybe there's just nothing left to say,
when silence is the only one speaking, hearts can hear no reasons to stay.
When did his eyes lose their vision ... her reflection is no where to be found,
so her eyes then realize ..."the ties that bind"... now only tie her down.

At what cost, what price ... is contentment held,
do we have to dance with the devil--to have all our demons expelled.
When does following your heart, become an act of sin,
only a heart's conscience can know, the answers all lie with in.

Who knows this wisdom, who possesses the secrets untold,
is it fate or destiny that decides, which hearts will end with ...
"to have and to hold."
All this heart knows ... is love no longer sees me, here where in I stand...
and now I hear whispered promises calling out to me...
reaching for my hand.

 ...when you walked into the room, I saw their faces,
you made it feel like time was standing still...and I felt fascination...
then you turned and smiled in my direction...
and my heart...gave me away.

Janet,
     Extremely powerful and emotional piece.  I know exactly what you mean.  I went through the same thing not too long ago, and I was on the receiving end.  I know what it is like to look in the eyes of the one you love and see no trace in them of what you have inside of you.    You really captured the mood in this one, girl!
    

 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~

Hi Janet Marie,

You just said word for word what I am feeling right now, it almost scares me to see it in writing and I feel if I do not do something I am going to fall in to the great devide and not find my way out again.
Thank you so much for this poem.

janet-

you took all my words and my breath away with this one! i could feel the intense emotions behind every single word. i could feel the unanswered questions, the pain, the fustration as if it was happening to me. i am sorry that this person caused you pain. but i have learned that it is our darkest moments and hardest times that sometimes turn out to be our biggest victories, a silver lining just inside out. hang in there. i KNOW you are a strong person, and i still as always stand in respect of you!

Love ya,
AMY

Janet....Oh you know how to capture it so well, I used to wonder when I made the switch from "me" to "the wife" now I don't bother asking.  You are such an exquisite writer...thank you for sharing this you've touched my heart with this as you often do.


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

More like an entry in a diary than a poem because such honesty is seldom voiced so others can hear it.  Wonderful work.

Janet Marie,
    This is quite a sad piece, but it also shows a great understanding. I pray if this is a personal plea that you find the solutions you seek. They can be found, no one deserves to live in a quagmire of lost emotions. Good luck.
