Mindless psycho babble.


Betrayed
by life's double edge--
wounded
by one I cherished--
I ripped my heart out
by its tangled roots.


But deep within
I knew it was not love
that basely changed
amid the flames.
I need must give it
some other name
and think not that
I've ever loved
until my love endures.


Without night's dread void,
how could I know the stars that burn? 
How could I see purity without the impure?
Yes!  I must claim the love that abandons me,
I must own it, though I stand in a place of scorn. 
For only that which has been regained
may grant a lasting virtue.


I must dare believe that a wealth of pain
in time outways its defects.
Besides, self pity is caustic to the soul.

Wonderfully introspective. Can we ever "claim" love? Seems it has a willful mind of its own. All the best to you, Jim. (By the way, your book looks like it is very good, also. Best of luck.)

Very well written poem.

I like Robert's perception of this poem. Uuuuummmmm....I could be wrong, but I think in your last stanza, the word "outways" should read "outweighs".

It is a fearful thing to love what death can touch Lee! This is not so mindless after all, consider it a rebirth & new beginning, all old things will pass and begin anew with the morning light! Nice write my friend!
