Sometimes we face doubts. This was one of those times. It is human nature to feel uneasy about intuition...especially for a woman.

This Eve of Discontent

Somewhere in the soul of discontent
Is a spot left ajar with love's faint lament
A drone if you will of emotions gone cold...
And the ring of a bell from a spirit on hold
If wishes were worth it and answers spoke truths
Then the heart of the matter would be black not blue
And the posers of silence...unspoken but fed
By gestures, urgency...a dread
Is the crux of the matter like quick games of chess
Just words to check passions and lust left a mess?
Or whispers of love that open the gates
For the victor whose words ring forever, "checkmate"
You have to believe or just lay down and die ...
For the soul never gives up this pie in the sky
So to speak and forgive me ,but never to dread,
These words that experience so often have lead..
A bride of loves passion as jealous winds blow
And words of a suitor whose words never showed...
Quite the meaning of love or just what was meant
On this eve of regression and masked discontent.

The veil of infinite sadness that sometimes almost chokes our hearts is difficult to remove. But once it is, we are capable of seeing with our minds what has been hidden for our eyes. It takes time, often a period in which the hurting slowly fades and in that period we cannot help but writing poems such as these.

You express a universal theme (dilemma), Susan. Well done. Thank you. Love and peace,

Reviewed by Peter Paton 3/4/2006
We live in a world where everyone is out to do the other, there are no longer any rules or morals to hold the game in check anymore, and as such we have two choices, either retreat into a " Fortress Mentality ", or go all out single mindedly for your dreams and objectives, rolling over the dissapointments and discouragements in life.
I personally favor the latter Susan !
Reviewed by E T Waldron 3/4/2006
This is a "Susan special" So beautifully written a joy to read.
The topic is a troubled one we all have to face now and then.
You covered it perfectly!

Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 3/4/2006

You capture, clearly, cleverly, the internal struggle with discontent. And in rhyme, no less...well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
