Some Of Us - Poem by Lora Colon

Some of us know the anguish of loving
And never being loved in return;
Hope gets consumed in fires of remorse,
But despair and anguish will not burn

Some of us know the journey of the heart
Can be fatal when trust goes astray;
Soon love falters, then withers and dies,
But the memories do not decay

Some of us seem to get so close to love,
It's just within the grasp of our hand;
Into that stream we foolishly plunge,
But it's just a mirage in the sand

Some of us think love is pure happiness,
But it's love that teaches us to cry;
We've been told that love is immortal,
But through tear-filled eyes, we watch it die

Some of us have learned to dwell in darkness,
There's a strength we find within these walls;
With so many of us living here,
We laugh at loneliness when it calls

Some of us sulk, while others dare to hope
For that glorious dream that yet may be;
Some of us say we are done with love,
But you'll never hear those words from me!

    Some of Us – Echoed

    It seems some of us live in denial of love,
    For true love stays unnoticed that sits on our face,
    Most folks recognize love only when it is leaving,
    The calendar dings when it’s time to start grieving.

    To seek happiness only is flaw of the heart,
    And the love you are missing perhaps you reject,
    For deep feelings are frequently balanced with tears,
    And vast salt water oceans mark love through the years.

    I think darkness is joke and possession’s a scam
    Do you wish to hunt love and kill feeling my friend?
    For the love of God’s all that’s immortal it seems.
    Wow! How lucky we are then that we’re in His dreams.
