Faces blend together
smiles and frowns become one
bodies merge, voices swell
my life has come undone

The tears that fall are counted
by the steps I take in retreat
Bitter is jealousy's flavor
as I smile at my defeat

She will have you nonetheless
I cannot make it otherwise
for I see you as just a man
she sees you as a prize

If you thought me worthy of your love
those feelings would be shown
There is no satisfaction in
a love in which I am alone

Sharon,

The emotions and feelings in this poem reached out and squeezed on my heart.
I remember this feeling very clearly.

Great work, PdV!  I could also feel the emotion in this one, so very powerful.  Thank you for sharing it with us!

Thank you...I asked acire for a phrase to use to write a poem and he gave me the last line in this poem, so part of the thanks for the inspiration goes to him!

this is really beautiful writing, thank you for posting it.  i also liked your note in the reply, i often start my poems from the end with a good last line and work backwards    it's better that way

Sometimes, the things that go unsaid are the only things worth hearing.

A beautiful poem I have found hidden here...  

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

Well let her have him, she'll find out,
He's just an unfaithful, straying lout.  Joyce

Well done, but the sadness in this one is very powerful.....i feel you here Sharon.
Well done!

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Have you ever felt this Sharon? If not, then you've done an amazing job of portraying this silent bitterness.. that person's heart has been torn out, so clearly.. and the tears are not sure whether they should be shed in sadness, bitterness, anger or pain.. but you have shown that all of these rolled into one leaves such an ache.. I loved this piece, and for a poem that acire inspired, this is exceptional.. okok, joking, sorry acire.. ^_^ No, truly, this is lovely PdV

Love,
Lynne
