Restless

My tortured mind trys to escape
The vision of him
My love for him
It will not escape with sleep
For as soon as I close my eyes
There he is

The sames dreams that kept me alive
So very long ago, it seems
Are now just another insturment of torture

For so long now
I have been restless
My mind races
My heart is broken
And my soul feels dead
As I vainly try
To move ahead

The events of that day
Play over in my head
Over and over and over
I have it memorized
And as I try to see
What is so terrible about me
I wish for rest

I don't care in what form it comes
I just want rest

I want him out of my head
I want him out of my heart
I want the dying in my soul to stop
I want to stop loving him...

But I never will
10,50 years from now
I will love him still

Eternal love is torture
When it is unreturned

it is torture when you love someone and their love is unreturned.....but in time all wounds heal...not 10,50 long though much sooner than that

Lovebug, Please believe me when I tell you that you have yet to meet the love of your life. And that love will fog over memories of "that day". You have a lot of days ahead. But your poetry is wonderful!

Though I know you will move on from this love and find love anew in someone else, I do have to agree that some loves remain in your heart for a lifetime.... tucked in the corner of my heart is a boy I loved when I was sixteen... I'll die loving him still... though I've loved since and hope someday to love again... Very good poem LoveBug..

The last two lines of this piece tells a tormenting truth.  
Wishing you the best.  Enjoy reading your work.

LoveBug~

Great big *HUGS* sent your way.
It's hard to realize it now ...
cause it hurts so gosh-darned much,
you won't get OVER it ... but you
will get PAST it.  I promise.

And when you do and you again smile
that easy smile of new love in bloom ...
I'm saving this one to send back to you.  
You let me know when !  Deal ?
Love to you.
~*Marge*~
