The picture you painted
With the words that I read
my perception is tainted
By the life I have lead

The beauty of your tale unseen
The dreams you weave Iíve not felt
From the places I've been
And my heart of ice that won't melt

I reach to feel your joy
And journey to see the sun
With happiness I toy
But it just will not come

Do I stop the quest
So I don't once again fail
would it be best
Rather than follow hopes trail

I know the answer I would give
If it were you that were asking
I'd say get out there and live
Thereís a sunbeam meant for your basking

Iíve tried to find the warmth of the sun
but it has eluded me all of my days
Always a tear waiting when the day is done
In the darkness where the haunting memory lays

Then there are the moments I permit you
To carry me into the tale of love you weave
Within your words Iím swept there too
Allowing me a brief chance to.............Believe





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

I can feel the pain and fear and the fear of pain in this one. Beautiful and heart-wrenching.  Don't give up....happiness will be yours.

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

This is really soul-stirring. I liked these lines most

"Always a tear waiting when the day is done
In the darkness where the haunting memory lays"

This moved me a lot, thanks for posting this one!

regards and take care,

i just want to kiss you for this one...
you have no idea...
mirrors again, my SS...we are holding up mirror...I  just wish they were'nt always reflections of pain...but i do find quite comfort in knowing...you know.
this is EXQUISITE...
and one of your finest...as it was written from  the deepest place in the heart and soul...
thank you for this...
I will be responding to your E-mail soon...I have much to say and share.
take care, sweet butterfly
love ya, jm




 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Thank you all so much for reading and for such kind comments, you gave me a *s* today.

J.M. I know   It's always a comfort to know you understand, and only you would know how deep that comfort goes and exactly what it means to me, thank you...for everything.


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

Hi Butterfly!
Thats nice and I enjoy reading your poems.It clearly shows the anxiety in stepping on to a relationship.
But there's no harm in living with it. I deisre the desire to come true someday but not in the near future. So I'll free my love so that it never binds her to make her choices to the best.

Sincerely
A_L

Our experiences do taint our view of other's words and life itself, don't they? Wonderful poem, Butterflies!
