Somersaulting love
tipsy turvy relationship
mixed up music
rock n blues
rolling emotions.

Love hating to feel
heart unwilling to break
desires needing attention
mind ignoring reality
arms needing hugging.

Addiction never admitting
true feeling of emotions
forward moves reversing course
drifting back to the comfort zone
magnetic needs ignoring obligation.

Locked door of security
saying you where unfaithful
shocked judgement of denial
relationship put out of bounds
dedicated commitment or move on.

Flowers of forgiveness
words released within true love
perfect friendship reinvented
sharing time freely engaged
in a special relationship.

Thought: How many have lost the love that devoured them by ignoring the commitment that slowly goes in maintaining the loving relationship that does not need to wander.

You, sir, have superbly matched your poem to your title, which is what drew me in, in the first place. This is indeed a 'sommersault' of a delivery here.. well done! As to your afterthought: Nope.. NOT GUILTY! when I fall, he's it cuz it goes all the way to the core! Hope all is well with you on this score.. the end seemed quite hopeful.. another enjoyable part of reading your poem.. the chaos, then the resolve.. you expressed it all so well. katy.

OUCH! This is true. At the time, no one sees anyone is hurting at all. Self destruction. Very good penning.
