Misunderstood Love


Loving you fills
my heart with joy.
You complete me in so many ways.
You make me feel
like a princess,
special and loved,
and yet

I know that you do not love me
as much as I love you
and that hurts.

Yet I will continue loving you
because I have never
met anybody quite like you,
a teddy bear who
holds me, caresses me

through your love and affection
you have mended all of my open wounds
which have been inflicted on me
through my difficult life.

You cradled my seed
as it struggled to rise
above the dry soil
lifting its petals
into the radiant sunlight,
then
watched it
come to light beneath a slow breeze
that soothed
the wounds natured
burdened it with its wild breath -
you cajoled its fragrance to blow
across the fields,
fresh and new.

That is so special,
even if
it cannot harbor my heart's desire.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
