I walked by the
outdoor cafe where
we used to meet
for lunch

What beautiful
memories though
sad, I realize I still
love you a bunch

A sudden downpour
chased me inside 
I had a cup of coffee
with my thoughts of you

As I sat there looking out
the window, your face
seemed to be looking
in at me

Just a mirage, but one I
wanted to be real so
badly it brought tears
to my eyes

Wherever you are love
 I'm sorry we couldn't
 make it,you still live in
my heart

Though we're  apart,your
in a foreign country and
your mind in another
dimension

Too many of you to
understand, in too
many places, with
too many faces

Still I love them all
but all of them didn't
love me, only the less
dominant one

Perhaps you'll meet
someone who can match
up with your controlling
 alter and live happily
ever alter...(or after;-)

etw

Sad write...but love the humor at the end... :~)
It is hard to let go of those who we loved in so many different dimensions, no matter how much some of their actions hurt us.

Like looking out of that panoramic airport window love suddenly with aluminun wings, like a frozen in midair angel which isn't there, just a mirage as you said, just a mirage for our hopeful and longing heart.

I like to think of people like that as psychic vampires. They just suck the life and energy right out of you. And when they are done, it is as if you are a pillar of salt. Hard and extra vulnerable. Reconstitute yourself woman. Don't let the vampires get you. ~ Sara

A free independet spirit should never be caged no matter how beautiful the cage and keeper, a wonderful attempt to become a turtle dove, when in reality you where always an eagle. A beautiful repast of past memories. God Bless! Jasmin Horst

I loved the way you walked us through your tender and beautiful emotions, Eileen and persevered ... Wonderfully written :)

I got a kick out of this Eileen,
like the faces of death there are faces of truth & alter ego's can also be a very serious dilemma for those who suffer with MPD, but what I got a kick out of this is that I have experienced this type of person first hand as in your poetic express that is & it isn't funny dealing with someone whom feels they do no wrong & want to control you-but do not apply the same boundaries & rules to them self-they are totally arrogant when you peel away the layers of their facade
I say find a new coffee shop!
I especially Love Love Love the end :)

A lightly cynical moment of self-analysis with a twist at the end - still though a precious and encompassing revelation. It is always best to look at our lives directly in the eyes instead of through carnival mirrors.

The sadness...ah, so beautifully written for a love we so long for. Beautifully crafted lines ET! I love it.
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 4/7/2008
There is both longing and letting go here, Eileen. A healthy "resolution" to make on a relationship that would seemingly always remain uncomfortable while you were in it. We have to be happy in our skin, but unfortunately, for whatever reason, we only find out too late what our (or the other's!) skin is all about. Then the tough decision is to either live with it or to bow out. I know you're not a quitter and, if you did, it would have been because there was no viable alternative that made sense. This is "just poetry", but of course, but your voicing makes it very real. We can all relate, perhaps, to its reasoning. Bless you, Kate xx
