Feel Sad For Me - Poem by Stevie Taite

Feel sad for me
The 'death' I feel
For the thing I mourn 
That wasn't real

The burning ache
So bitter sweet
Unleashed from where
My wishes sleep

Beneath the surface
Frozen cold
Defrosted by
Desires untold

So warm it felt
Though tinged with sorrow
A mouth of taste
Forbidden to swallow

My heart is whole
safe and cherished
And inner demons
Would see it perished?  

If not for sense
And circumstance
How fond is felt
The backward glance

    Those are my favorite lines. You've captured the emotion behind unrealized aspirations or unfulfilled hopes very well. Wishes sleep...desires untold...the backward glance. Thanks for sharing.
