A Chance - Poem by Patricia Gale

His words glide like silk against soften skin
I am captivated by the thought wondering should I give in
Could this be a chance by the angels
Hearing a prayer for a heart that has always dangled

I sometimes fall too easy in the trap
Then curse myself as I wipe off the crap..
left on my shoes as I walk away
From a broken heart some would say

Precaution is what is needed
Not some romantic lines that he will feed me
Desperately the heart does cry
The mind stops and says perhaps one more try

But fear is bigger than the head and heart
For love always seems to depart
And broken promises lay withered upon the floor
As the final sound hits the door

Should this chance be taken?
Is it meant to be?
Broken dreams will they awaken?
Or will truth shine and lead me to my final decree

    The answer to 'A Chance, ' lies here itself.

    When we love ourselves, and are confident, we are interesting as there is always some mystery about us. At times, when a person falls in love, they don’t have time for themselves. Lovely lines………..10 (Report)Reply

    ...as love always moves the best of me, this poem reached in and touched some emotional depths that I've hide so secretly. This is a good read. Thank you, Patricia.

    Patricia, chances should be taken, for if we don't there is always a linger doubt in our mind as to what might have happened. Great write. Top marks from me and thanks for sharing it my friend.

    Yet doth not heart bring tender spirit
    and tender to the soul within it
    and so such love frequenteth us
    and dabbles with romantic flush.

    Matters of the heart, so delicate they are. This poem portrays thoughts that many of us have from time to time and some will make the right choice and others the wrong but whatever the choice isn't it wonderful that we had the opportunity no matter what the outcome. That's how memories are formed good or bad and we can always turn the bad ones into good by learning from our own mistakes. I love this poem, I can definitely relate to it for sure. Excellent work Patricia, a big (10) from me.--Melvina-- (Report)Reply
