Vacant Garden Bench
By La Belle Rouge

youíll never find me in the dark
when night chases twilight away

you donít know where i walk
if you knew would you care?
do i want to tell it pride
or possibly pain that seals my lips?
is it distance or is it disdain?
the past or the present dividing
two hearts that once embraced
the love conceived between them?
we make our mistakes, we accept
the hopelessness of impossibility
and when the path forks two ways
we endure the agony of never

you donít see the grim shadows
creeping, lying long across my valley
or how the bench in our sunlit garden
will soon belong to another lifetime
you wonít miss what you missed
youíll forget the fire of eternal kiss
sacrificed for cold season of honor
we live and die with our mistakes
no, you donít know where i walk
places you'd never think to look
you wonít miss me when i disappear
beyond the horizon of your dreams

you donít know where i walk
and it's too late for you to follow

This is one of the most heartwrenching goodbye poems I have ever read. "You don't know where I walk" sums it up for me. Excellently done, master. Liz

Maybe he was waiting sitting on the wrong bench in the wrong park, asking himself why...why she didn't came?...
Life is so unfair sometime, playing with people's destiny, making the to miss each other when they were so made for each other, and instead make them to bump into someone that will make their pitiful lives yet more pitiful with a lot of what ifs...

Solemn, yet beautiful photograph! "It's too late for you to follow" pretty well sums up this marvelous piece, yet it contains a sadness that seems to linger....

Be always safe,

Beautiful Photo of emotion a Belle,
and so is your poetic expression in this tear jerking write!
Love he Best Thing In The World. But the pain we all are embraced in memories with this write.

Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 4/21/2008
The extreme emotions here are often those I've felt. Some people/lovers are so very selfish that they don't absorb the love stretched out before them. What a sad commentary when love is one sided and blind.
Blessings and love,

Poignantly penned, can barely see for the tears rolling down my face - you know how to squeeze the heart, La Belle. Your poetry reaches deep - excellent.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Reviewed by Kathy Armijo 4/21/2008
My heart is filled with sadness as I read this. Reminds of when my first marriage ended ... tragic. Yet, the road traveled alone is better than traveling with a 'bad' companion.

God bless you. Kathy
