there was a time long ago before we turned the page
when the strength of love was still on our side
when our own hearts danced upon a slippery stage
and long before the intimacy between us died

we struggled in this routine that we laid so fast
trying to cope and learn of each otherís needs
we were young starting out wanting so to last
not knowing just how to accomplish these deeds

we look in the mirror and the reflection stares back
as if we were someone different replaced by time
what we were does not match if we kept on track
for this mountain of ours was too great a climb

and then our todays became yesterdays and still
they have slipped between our fingers like the rain
sliding down the past like liquid mercury on the hill
filling our memories with these photographs of pain

there was a time when we did not have a clue
when being naive was poison taken in the dark
the future could not reveal itself so we never knew
but every mistake made had somehow left a mark

we were too busy to notice the writing on the wall
too involved in others to see we changed our lives
we slid apart and then failed to recognize its fall
a problem repeated between husbands and wives

we did not do very well in relinquishing our parts
this is stuck in our past although we have moved on
and yet the guilt of letting it die is within our hearts
for not trying a hundred percent and now it is gone

so explain to me why you still appear in my dreams
as if nothing else had even happened ever since
time has gone backwards as crazy as that seems
and I know that none of that is making any sense

So poignant Amor and so beautifully penned. I think many of us do the best we can at the moment. It's very sad that most of the important life altering decisions we make are made when we are too young to have the experience and wisdom necessary to understand such things. I know how hard it is to keep the heart focused on the beauty of life when we have witnessed so much of its other side and regrets are one of our worst enemies. Brilliant poetry as always.
Reviewed by Don Juan Amante 5/3/2012
we all have our own burdens, regrets and our efforts to rise above them. a masterful and emotional pen.
Reviewed by Christine Tsen 5/2/2012
You convey so beautifully, so soulfully, the intense desire we all have to live life fully!
Your poem has such a genuine understanding of how we must face the infinite mystery of love and come to terms with it however we must.
Blessings,
Christine

To dream of memories when our hearts danced
on a slippery stage. Love bestowed upon each
other in heart now captured in a swirl of
dreams. Splendid poetry Amor.

Amor,
This poem is very heart touching. So many people can relate to your tender words. Looking back, even in a dream is counter productive. We have to live with our choices and learn from any mistakes that we have made in order to have a more fulfilled life. March onward, spiritual soldier you are an amazing person and life is at your fingertips.

Thought provoking poetry!

Peace, love and light,
Amber

Lovely write, Amor....this could be the lives of far too many of us....well done!

Your poem reads like a roadmap of marriage in America. Our lives are so bound up in routine that even love becomes stale when we continue along the same path every day. Everyone should read it before they contemplate marriage and not after they've had that first divorce.

The heart has room to hold on to meomories cherished, the beauty to look back thru a looking glass is indeed a gift, we live and we learn as some just live...very moving words that many can relate to Amor.

For anyone who has attempted one, two, or even three attempts at that conquest of mountainous terrain, there is much to say for this poetic examination of what some might think the imponderable. Yes, one can work hard at controlling the conscious moments of attempts and failure, but during the free fall of dreams, one can only close one's eyes each night and hope the lack of resolve is waning. ...Why you still appear in my dreams..." well, sometimes clouds just won't clear to allow a successful attempt for the summit and the moment to finally claim: It is done.

your poem of love, a love not recognizing its own deficiencies, is bound to fall, wither, die and lose its sense of being ...

very moving and well written ...

this poetic offering is wonderful and
offers us much reflection Amor...everyone can benefit
from reading this too & taking the wisdom inwards
to look at our lives & those we cherish
it is sad when couples loose that spark for each other

This whole poem makes sense, Amor. Open heart and insert the weapon of time.It's what you do with that though that matters.

Ah, Amor, I could use every word in this beautiful/sad poem and it would fit perfectly for my first wife and I. Every word.
Reviewed by Diana Wiles 5/1/2012
The good times and the meaningfulness of intense relationships like the one you describe are not easily put aside or forgotten, even after we 'move on'...Perhaps it is the nature of Love itself, and the memory of what 'may have been'...Love past or present often makes little sense...
