Haunted Promise

You teased me and said there would be another
when in reality I could not take a lover;
for there will never be any other
for you will forever haunt me.

Go ahead and tease my flame
but a lover by any other name
will never be had, no, not by me
for you will forever taunt me.

To see another in this room?
Did you think just any body
could erase the long night’s gloom
of this lonesome lady?

Lonesome I am and lonesome I shall be,
as I stay shrouded in your memory;
for in any face I might gaze on, you I see
for you will forever haunt me.

Ah, dear love, don’t you know?
Safe am I in your haunting glow…
you were the love of my life, it is so,
and forever, you will haunt me.

Oh..so true that our poems compliment each other today, must be the weather or something. Actually mine is something I've had hanging around for a little while now that begged to be posted today for want of something else.
Lovely poem by the way

Hi S  !
Thats beautiful as I've always felt there's only person I love and I hold her i my heart so dear. Sometimes I go crazy but I hold on for love never dissipates with fear or loneliness. It grows for ever.

Sincerely
A_L

Ruth, it is hard to believe that you would ever hold any of your creations back...so whatever is left out there, post, post, post!

A_L - thank you for the "beautiful".  With a heart like yours, your love is sure to stay for the long run!  Thanks for reading...

Oh man, isn't it just awful when you can't get your mind to let go of all those "thoughts" and memories...?  Argh...However, it's almost like a time of mourning.  When your heart is through crying, you just might decide you're ready to face a new day with someone in your tomorrow.  Hold on to memories until you're good and ready to let go.  I think that's the healthy thing to do.  Take care, and heal.

Sunshine,
I'm right there with you girl!  Darn, if we could just forget!

Beautiful, sad thoughts...but so lovingly expressed, Sunshine.

It is so hard, this letting go, if ever, indeed, we achieve it...

PFF - believe it or not, this is possibly foresight, as it is not hindsight...

Marge, I hold your three words dear...

Lori, see message to PFF...

Claire, see message to Lori...

Pepper, thank you for all inspiration...
