All But Love

In all fairness I will, and I will for sure
Tell you my story, my story of Love

Stone of Heart or Heart of Stone hath he
Beneath that sweet smile, a smile of goldy

Friend he called me, called me many names
But he never heard, heard my cry of pain

Words he gave and words had no meaning
Will he acknowledge my being, was a distant dream

Shattered I lie and lie with my shattered heart
Nostalgia of days, the days those are gone past

Left he scars, many scars of emotional turmoil
Took away my peace, the peace for a lifetime

Among the things he gave, gave passions of desires
The only thing he did not give, he did not give LOVE! ! !

    'Friend he called me, called me many names
    But he never heard, heard my cry of pain

    Words he gave and words had no meaning
    Will he acknowledge my being, was a distant dream

    Shattered I lie and lie with my shattered heart
    Nostalgia of days, the days those are gone past'

    especially loved these lines leading to the inevitable 'he did not give LOVE! ! ! '

    Left he scars, many scars of emotional turmoil
    Took away my peace, the peace for a lifetime
    A fine portrayal of emotions arising out of a consequence of a love betrayed. Thanks.

    Stone heart can have only love of stone but not vibrant heart of love ever sure!

    The plight of a betrayed mind has been wonderfully narrated. Instead of brooding over it, it is always better to get moving forward with a positive approach to mold the future with motley colors. Thanks for sharing.10 points.

    So much string attached but in the end it always be dettached, as we encounter and feel the pain there is always a bright side, that we learn from it. All the pain will always remain on our heart but it will also teach us how to be strong & be a better person. I really love this poem! ! ! ! God bless you always!

    Beautiful poem and I say, 'Move on to someone who will love and adore you.' Easier said than done, because I have a hard time moving on. : -))
