I think I or someone else may have used this image before but it just seemed to fit the poem so well...


 

 

 

 

 

Backdrop of sorrow

picture of fool who believed

he could share his love

 

Hangs in dim corner

where hardly anyone sees

tear tracks in the dust

 

Nobody to blame

cruel dark brush strokes of fate

life’s painted portrait…

Fee,
Nine poignant lines..that might contain one's whole lifetime!
What an amazing write, Brother! And you're right, Emmett Kelly paints the same picture..
Inside my head there plays the words of Gene Pitney's song: 'Only love can break a heart.. only love can mend it again.'
Wise words.. since love trumps all.
And I love this poem! Stay safe and well, Fee!
Love & Blessings, Rv Rhonda

As an optimist I would say no matter the hand we are dealt, we have to play it to the best of our ability. Life is unfair, I suppose I will agree with that but struggle makes us stronger and, if we allow it, better people. I have empathy because I have lived and if I have a dull or dreary day, I know that with a bit of effort I could have changed it. Happy New Year, Fee. I hope it will be a beautiful one for you.
Take care,
Sherry

Love the painting; love your poem even more.

Sad, but it is always a joy to read your work.

Hope this finds you and yours thriving, Fee. And then some!! Sorry I've been out of touch. Downs almost make you forget the ups at times, don't they.

My mother would have shouted that I am being overdramatic. But...been hard since Ray's health took a downturn. He's having surgery the 20th. Hope it helps.

Love always,

Pea

It's hard to put your love out there again once it has been stomped on. It's not that we are fools if we do.....it just plain hurts to imagine that it will happen again. It takes a lot of courage to give someone our love once it has.

Love ya!

Love is a many splendered thing and unless
we don't share our love we never know even
if it is unwanted for we are all loving
creatures not fools my dear Fee

Painful the feeling of not having it returned

Hugs

Love and Light
