 Exercise of Futility

Do you ever wonder where I am and what I do
Like the way I wonder about you?
Do your arms ever long to reach out and hold me close
Like the way mine long to hold you tight?

Do you ever remember my voice
And the way I look into your eyes
When you softly whisper sweet nothings
While your eyes bore into mine?

Do you ever imagine how it feels
To constantly long to lay down beside you
And kiss your lips, to once again
Taste that endless bliss and sweetness?

I keep wondering
Like a fool who blindly seeks
A never ending reality
That somehow…
I need to stop this exercise of futility.

Don't we all experience this form of exercise once or twice in our lifetime? If it gives relief to the aching heart, well, it can't be so futile. Well penned, Sheri.

Love,

Sheri, this is so heartfelt. I sincerely hope this isn't the state you're in now. Be happy, my friend.

Love and longing practically jump off the page. GREAT JOB !!

Hope this is fiction. If not, that it is about 'ancient' history.
Don't want you to be down!

IF YOU FEEL IT IS FUTILE...THEN IT IS, BUT IF, DEEP IN YOUR HEART, YOU THINK IS NOT FUTILE THEN.... WELL DONE WITH PHRASES AND IMAGERY THAT SUPPORT THIS WORK SOLIDLY. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS.

This is very heartfelt and full of pain with the ending being the punch line. There are many of us that have had more than our share of exercises in futility, only to go back and exercise again. This poem shows the thoughts of a person who is wondering why she/he keeps going through that exercise of futility. All I can Sheri is, we have all been there a time or two, maybe more. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister Barbie

Yes!

The book for you, my dear Sheri, is "He's Just Not That Into You" by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.

It's been highly successful in sales, most likely since an enormous number of women endure the same feelings you express in "Exercise Of Futility."

But while the book takes a somewhat clinical approach, your posted work shares deep feelings with us. I like your version better!

Sheri, lovely, lonely, longing to be reunited -- the questions the breaking heart seeks answers to -- "Go Blame It On Midnight" --"Shame on the Moon" -- a Bob Segar rendition of a Rodney Crowell song -- silence is the mortal morass of perpetual grieving -- move away from those places into the light of hope and promise -- energy is oozing with the passion of your write my friend -- you said this thing with style and understanding -- may peace and love be always with you -- Jon Michael

Against tremendous odds, some stay in the sanctuary of silence, heart longing, never forgetting.

There are the givers and there are the takers, and like water and oil...no matter how hard you shake them, they will never be blended.

Wow Cherry this one is very emotional with the yearning and longing almost breathing life into each word. Sad but very well done indeed.
