Okay the Dam has opened. No telling what will be written next LOL. The photo that I am showing with this freelance poem is titled Silence. A word of nothing that tells everything.

You want me donít you? I can tell.
I have been your prize once before.
My wings are spreading; my life is full.
Through your eyes I see me again.
So many years of pain, of loss,
Tears fell. you didnít care.
Our last words ugly to the ears.

Iím unattainable, this is why you want me.
Oh the ride we would be on if I said yes.
The traveling, the laughing, the experiences.
Always ending with a hug or a kiss.
My eyes are no longer innocent to your ways.
Your smile and laughter was joy to my heart.
A heart you broke when you looked the other way.

Our last words ugly to the ears.
Tears fell. You didnít care.
So many years of pain, of loss,
Through your eyes I see me again.
My wings are spreading; my life is full.
I have been your prize once before.
You want me donít you? I can tell.

Wish you would post a new write. Are you ill? It is so nice reading your writings. You at least know we want you on the den. Please come out like the eagle on your bio and fly free and set yourself free and write on more beautiful thoughts. It can be, but prayers go out for thee.

Hi Kate, there is much sadness in this poem. Hope times will get better. I almost lost my loved one, but in a different way. However, when a loved goes away or might go away, we feel like a part of us is dying or might die, too. All we can do is pray and keep on hoping.

Best wishes,

To accept what once was and will never be again or wanting something after it has been lost can cause pain. Thank you for sharing Kate.

To want is not necessarily to have, Kate. I agree with Jeanette, that you have touched on all the feelings and emotions she described. Thank you for sharing, Kate, this is a very insightful piece, and gives women all over the world, hope to be able to tell that one creep where to go.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), sister Barbie

Love, differences, anger, separation, sadness, loneliness, denial, MAYBE NEXT TIME... You've touched on all of these, which can be a cycle toward a second destructive relationship.

Well penned.

Ah, this reminds me of the Phil Collins song about the woman in the red dress . . . Destroyed love sometimes has a way of coming back to bit the hell out out you . . . And what better way than to make him desire you again . . .

So sad ...remembering the pain. It's hard to fathom that pain scars so deep.
