we were one when together

eye gazing until the wee hours of the morning
no sleep
just happy hearts beating together

longing to be with him
ache in my heart
living 10 minutes away
but worlds apart

both had families
didn’t well blend
divided us
again and again

lived separate lives
just texts and emails checking in

this went on for a long time
until my heart said no more

go be with your ex-wife
who you love more

I,too, can be with a man
who loves me more

he won’t share my secrets to all his friends
he will respect my wishes as I do for him

it’s sad to be apart
but necessary to stop a bleeding heart

bleeding no more
shattered, yes
the heart broke into a million pieces inside my chest

we were once a couple
now we are strangers
the bubble burst
disrespect, frustration and anger

Life – A Bubble In The Flowing River

Life   A Bubble In The Flowing River short poem

Life and Death are like the Birth and Bonding of a flowing River While on Birth we sure cry We fear when on death Advancing of our Age is akin to the blowing in size of the bubble in water
