A Love So Tragic

Rating: 4.1

(pt 1)
We seem so indifferent
Like we just don't feel
We've got cuts on our hearts
That will never heal
Beautiful as a train wreck
In that confusing way
Stuck in reverse
Living on yesterdays
We fall into the darkness
And drown in the sea
No love has ever been so tragic
As the love between you and me

(pt 2)
Your gorgeous as you always are
So beautiful no one could believe
That you could find such beauty
In someone like me
But we paint a pretty picture
We make it look so nice
With hearts hard as stone
And eyes carved from ice
Seperated only by distance
Our beauty envied by the stars
Our story so original
The tragedy of what we are

(pt 3)
Pick me up and carry me
Through our sweet abyss
Shroud me in your fantasy
Its not like I'll be missed
Give me all your heart
Your perfect in my imperfections
Look in the mirror and see it
That beautiful reflection
So we'll dance our way to freedom
We'll dance until we die
Forever framed in beauty
The tragedy of you and I

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Jon Alan 15 September 2007

'A Love So Tragic' is so beautifully woven. The fabric of your expression is full of many moods and colors. You are at once seemigly optimistic and happy, yet simultaneously there is an undercurrent of hopelesness and a precognition of tragedy, the curse of all lovers gambles. You have captured me, and your poetry, thus far, makes me feel like wishing I could reach out and offer you a cyber-hug to tell you that the combination of love, and the consequences of its risks, are so very well and artfully woven into that fabric of your poem, yet you somehow manage to grab the reader with a charm that is surrounded simutaneously by both optimism and defeat. So far out of four poems read I have two favorites, a very real indicator of your power as a poet and weaver of words.

I have read this poem quite often. It is haunting yet alluring, hard and yet hopeful. Reminds me of some of Tom Waits work.
