Love must be patient, even if it hurts...

I Wish I Could Tell You…

I know I do not have to tell you
You already know
But still…
I wish I could tell you
How much I miss your voice
But that would not be appropriate
I wish I could tell you
How much I miss your sweet scent
But that would be deemed wrong
I wish I could tell you
How much I miss your kiss
But that would be condemned
I wish I could tell you
How empty is my world without you
But that would be frowned upon
I wish I could tell you
How I long to hold you again
But that would not be considered proper
I wish I could tell you
How lonely I am without you
But that would be unbecoming
I wish I could tell you
How I think of you all the time
But that would roil the waters
So I am patient
But patience can be lonely
I tell this to the heavens
And all who would hear
It’s simply this
I love you

What is this invisible feeling called love? Why does it drive us mad when it's not mutual and causes us to crave more of this invisible feeling? I talked to a good friend who just celebrated her birthday. She said all I wanted for my birthday was a big hug. She got many hugs after our church service was over. So her love comes from Godly people because her man has up and gone. Amen my friend.

So beautifully poignant....

This is the abject pain lovers often encounter and to endure is one of life's greatest agonies. For social mores we punish ourselves unmercifully. It is so easy and uncomfortable to relate to your words Regis. May peace and love be always with you. Jon Michael

Pain, such pain of unrequited love. However, we never know what the future holds.

Wistful thoughts alone will never bring her home. Perhaps it's time to pick up the phone and try to re-connect. A sad, sweet song.

Oh, the ache of love .... toothache is less painful than longing for an old love... best wishes, kenny

You have drawn the picture of
the dawning of time, a time
when she was thine

Her voice, scent, kiss you do
miss, that leaves you longing,
empty, so lonely you mind does

Her deepest thoughts must be
of you, for you are stirring
the universe with all you feel
for her as you woo

Nice.. Thanks for the read..

But... patience never rewarded still doesn't take away the love.
And... one-sided love never works.
I've recently become more patient - but the past had shown me to be impatient quite a lot. So, you're right - it's a combination of "love" AND "patience." Of course, sometimes one-sided love is all there is. Should you wait, in hopes that it might change? Or move on? If you know that she loves you for certain... then wait; but, if you know it's over, move on. -- Jeff

This poem indicates there some secret reason why you, "can't." So my best advice is to stop worrying about it and move on. Like they say in the Pacific Northwest, "there's a lot more salmon in that river."

I wish I had the words to relieve the turmoil
& dispel the myths that bind you??
But I have never been in your shoes!
So I can only relate in theory(?)

But you capture the essence of Loss in the poem!
- - To strive after - But not have anymore!
- To live in memories - Without any contact.....?

Bravo on a job well done!! - - - - - MDK
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 4/23/2015
Sometimes we have to completely release our heart and let go of someone before we can ever have a chance at love, again. If you are holding on to someone else and hoping it will, once again, become the love affair you once believed it to be, you will never have a place in your world for the next true love who is waiting to be with you.

Love. A wonderful experience, until it becomes a hurting thing. Been there. Done that.
