Is there not a lure for the love that I have lost?
Is there not a cure for a heart which pays the cost?
Is there not an angel sweet with heart to chance with mine?
Is there not tranquillity to sooth and warmth to shine?

Does no one cry the tears I cry for all the pains of love?
Am I the only soul that grieves and prays to God above?
Are answers locked away with time as love that slowly died?
Are tears of man all wasted tears, before he even cried?

Do many now just sit alone with heartbeat slow and weak?
Do many just survive on past and live a future bleak?
Do they grieve through times of loss and live on memories bliss?
Do they fight with loneliness and all the things they miss?

Who answers all the questions? Who truly has a friend?
Do just some fingers on one hand surpass that numbers end?
When love has passed and days go on, is time all that will heal?
Does misery adopt a soul? With who does devil deal?

Who decides the rights and wrongs, ones fate of love or grief?
Who bestows the heart with love and futures with belief?
Are we merely pawns of life which seek and crave renown?
Or are we merely puppets, which one-day just fall down?

I'm going crazy, I'm losing sleep.
I'm in too far, I'm in way too deep over you.
You'll always be the one.
You were the first, you'll be the last.

Rick,
Welcome, I would say yes to the first part

Enjoyed the read.

This is a very interesting post...welcome to passions...

I am not sure if you are actually seeking answers or rather exploring within the realms of the self...

I wish you well... and hope you enjoy being with us here... as much as we do enjoy having you here...

Regards,
Sudhir

Such deep haunting, mind-provoking questions........

I won't pretend to know the answers......but I think you'd find alot of them in your heart.

Welcome to Passions .......I hope you'd love it here.....

Thank you........

Welcome to Passions and your poem was heartfelt and beautiful.  Yes, I think more people out there grieve for loss of love than can be measured. Hugs

Rick~
Welcome to our circle of poets and friends.
A nice offering of ponderous thoughts you've written.

'Are tears of man all wasted tears, before he even cried?'

I would only offer this -
Never cried a 'wasted' tear - when it fell for someone I loved.

Enjoy your stay among friends.

So many questions on life and love,
who knows where the answers lie
if not within?

Welcome to Passions.

I'm crying now!     Not really, but if I thought on it too hard, I would.  Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful poem.
