Words - Poem by Leigh Ladd

Your visions of the future,
So beautiful and sweet.
Now I know they were only meant
To sweep me off my feet.

There was no truth to your words,
Only lies and deceit.
I believed you,
My heart was too weak.

There was no reason
To speak the words that you said.
You should know when you mislead,
Others see red.

I sit here and wonder,
Again and again,
Do I forget you now,
Or love you til the end?

My heart is broken,
Damage done to my pride.
I thought I was worth love,
Now I want to hide.

Please tell me you intended
Those words at one time.
For your heart
To become one with mine.

I hurt and I grieve
For a long lost love.
If I meant anything at all,
Your kiss I could trust.

    Trust is all... once broken, so hard to recover, to summon again. Never settle - and always use all the senses, as well heart, mind and spirit in the decision to give love... A sadly wise poem. (Report)Reply
