I wrote this sad poem for a dear friend of mine, who, after being in a loving relationship for two years, found out the man she was in love with was married to another. As we cried together and I heard her story, I tried to convey her thoughts into words. I can only hope that I did her story justice. Joy


 

In the autumn of the year
    When the leaves were turning golden
Your love created in me a 
    A  Magic burst of Springtime
That promised to remain bright
     Through a long and cold winter
 

When you gazed into my eyes
     I was held in suspension
Not complely trusting you
     I wanted to return to me
Because being a part of you
     Was somehow frightening

You said "Trust me, my love
     For I will lead you" 
But your path was rocky
     Scattered with hurt and deception

Now springtime
     Has the pallor of winter... 
And lies cold
     Within my heart.

Joy, You managed to express the pain of loss and betrayal...that is difficult for anyone to do unless you can see the pain in their eyes and feel it in your heart. You managed to do it with ease and conviction.

Vividly poignant (do I overuse this word?) In my mind I am reminded of the words of Lord Tennyson."I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all." Tissue, please.....Jim

Wow, what a blend of dark and light as her love guided her down and then back to herself. I am sure you were a wonderful friend to cry to, through all the pain.

Joy, It's a lovely piece, but you treated him way to nicely..... You and I are usually on the same page, but I'd have had to carve him up a little bit,,,,, of course, just for the sake of my friend, but never the less we'd have sliced his ass up.....!!!!

Great write though... Thanks Dick

You captured the seasons of love in a wonderful poetic fashion that shows how deceit tears one apart.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 6/4/2011
The mischief that falsely professed love can bring is sad and very hurtful. There are those who use love as a weapon to subjugate and control another human being. The results of these sad stories range from emotional upheaval to suicide and often murder. Playing insincerely with love is an ugly, ugly game. This was a very good poem on the subject of manipulation.
