Hazel Durham

A Lucky Escape

Love is her wish with his breathtaking kiss,
He plunder's her soul with his delectable charm,
Warming up her heart, unravelling her dormant desire's,
Puzzling her questioning mind,
'Why me? '
Is she worthy of his sincere interest,
As she always feel's like a second rate date,
With her twisted soul that sow's a seed of self hate,
Even with her loving nature,
She find's a rotten apple too endure,
Discoloured and bruised,
From a past that flung mud at her so fast,
Leaving her with a complex like a faulty flex.

Tears of ever present resentment at her torment
With her brave inner roar of a lion and a lamb's bleat,
He cherished her broken and battered emotions,
Spiralling devotion as she has a terrible notion,
Destroy anything good is the devils potion,
With her feeling's far from level
Killing his love with her inner thunder,
That tear's him assunder,
Losing him is the hardest kick,
It leave's her floored,
She is the only one he ever adored,
Is it a mirage or a trick of light,
That he see's her as a ravishing sight.

She knows he has had a lucky escape,
As hell is striking her fragile mind,
She is far from well,
Clinging onto the dream of explaining to him,
Her stumbling destruction over her raw emotions,
Her real fear she will never get over his beautiful soul,
Wishing to get healed so that finally their love will be sealed.

    This poem tugs at my heart's strings. Why? Because I knew that lady. Low self esteem is so destructive, so prevalent among women who live in a male dominated society. Such a shame. He loved her for who she was, not for who she wanted to be. I fully understand your message here, Hazel, and the underlying cause. This is a great poem but only touches the surface. Thanks.

    Wow! So much in this poem to analyse, Hazel! It is not possible to love another person unconditionally, until we can love ourselves first, unconditionally. The beautiful soul in this excellently crafted write, finds it difficult to accept the love of her beloved because she has doubts about being good enough to accept the love being given to her, due to her own past. This happening is more common than we think and it eventually destroys the love between both people, because it causes many problems for them both. I love the final line in the poem, it brings the poem together for me, Hazel. Healing is the answer. Counseling/Psychotherapy, and then their love can blossom and grow into the rarest and most beautiful love ever found between two people. A wonderful write from your golden poetic pen, which I so enjoyed reading. Thank you for sharing. Blessings always... (Report) Reply

    Tormented by self pity and hatred, she wonders whether she will be able to reciprocate his adoration for her! She somehow doesn't like to deceive him! Her self realization that she is not worthy of him pains her like a sting! Yet she hopes of a time when oneday she will scale over her limitations and that their relationship will culminate into a beautiful relationship! ! A beautiful exploration into the complex human psyche! ! (Report) Reply

    Amazing Ma'am! The confusing thoughts brooding over her tender soul and his desire towards her, you have beautifully drawn. When life's two variables become parallel, the never ending, yet surprising paradox, raises questions difficult to answer (Report) Reply
