The Search - Poem by Jennifer L. Augustine

Sometimes life can be so cruel,
Hearts are destroyed with a match and some fuel.
When one walks away, it can feel just the same,
Everyone gets burned by the emotional flame.

Dealing with life can be a hard thing,
Never quite knowing what tomorrow will bring.
Will those you love stay safe from harm,
Or will something happen to cause you alarm?

Not knowing just how you can get so far off track,
Can make some people run and never look back.
Others look back and ask themselves why?
And see all along they'd been living a lie.

Searching for something that was there all along,
Never seeing they had a place to truely belong.
Then life deals a hand that is hard to ignore,
You find a true love that's eternal and pure.

A new life will be shared full of joy and of love,
Lasting longer than even the stars up above.
So hold on to that thought though we are miles apart,
You, dearest Blue-Eyes, will forever be my heart.

    Complex poem, with a conversational stylistic model, deep in its feeling, rich in idealistic elements. (Report) Reply
