Illusions of Love


Love is the mystery of the world. Nobody has the correct answers...So stop searching for them

Many of these poems, if not all, were written for that secret love that ended by fading away on a starry night a few years ago. I was crushed, devastated and beyond grief when I lost his friendship. The poem, “The Disease” was written after I finally was able to let go but still realized that he had feelings but was too scared to show me. The poem, “Saw You Today” was written after one of our short conversations, again the feelings we had were more than alive, but to no avail would he love me like I loved him.

Saw you today,
As you walked closer
I could see the smile
That haunts me at night
I was longing to hear your voice
And there it was
You standing there
Telling me all your great stories
Laughing like we use to
Sharing something special
That we only know is there
Pride is dangerous and cruel
It slips in just in time
Wakes you up and then
There you go
Leaving me standing
There watching you
Walking away
Wanting to run after you
But too scared to
Because all I can feel is
This void that you leave
Within me each time I
See you
But I can smile knowing that
I saw you today.

I hope you enjoy reading these poems and please, if you would be so kind to leave a review!
