In That Summer Of Loving You Poem by Debra A.G. Hawley

In That Summer Of Loving You

Rating: 3.0

In that summer of loving you
I was free
All things were possible
And I believed them all

In that summer of loving you
I was beautiful
I saw myself in your eyes
And I was wonderful

In that summer of loving you
I danced with passion
In and out of arms of love
And you held me

In that summer of loving you
I was laughter
You laughed with me
But never at me

In that summer of loving you
I lost you
And my heart was breaking... As you left me

a fine tale of finding passion and the world spinning with delight until the end as all things end without reason the loss lingers the heart never able to return to that innocence before that sadness lit the eye to the great burning sun of suffering a wonderful poem

Love and heartbreak seems to mix as well as water and oil. We don't like to see either one in our lives. Good poem of love cut short. You might enjoy my poem titled A Broken Heart. I gave this poem a ten. God bless-Michael Jeffrey Gale.

J. Girl, this again captures the depth of you love. The only thing that I would change would be the last two sentences, to make this a 4 line stanza, since all the others are 4 lined. Otherwise, good work. Scarlett
