Maybe This Time - Poem by Charles M Moore

She was so happy
she met someone kind
for cruelty was something
that played on her mind
of course there were others
who made her feel cheap
who abused her affections
and cut her quite deep

He felt so proud
when she called out his name
for names were a torture
that played on his brain
he lived with a few girls
who made him feel small
who took plain advantage
and cut off his balls

They stepped up together
a meeting of minds
with love for each other
as two of a kind
they somehow felt bonded
eyes hiding the pain
maybe this time
and never again.

    It's hard to go down that road only to find a dead end. How many times do we do that before we just give up? Always hoping - maybe this time................You said it all, Charlie.

    So tender, in it's pathos and hope this poem... It's the meeting of the minds part that many don't 'get'... Wounded spirits love deepest, when they find love, because they understand its preciousness. Wonderful, Charlie. (Report) Reply

    Ouch............who made him feel small
    who took plain advantage
    and cut off his balls

    I certainly hope never again, a deep from the heart feeling.
