POEM: The taste of pain is bitter tears

Photo credit: photobucket.com

The taste of pain is bitter tears
Her heart a square, my thoughts are round
In deep, so deep
Allay my fears
Reach out, smash out
My gutter sound,
Create for me an abyss
To drown my slicing cries
What hole is this to torture me
My tired soul yet flies,
His arms are shadows, wrapped around me
Taunting me his laugh,
Emotions comfort and then they flee
Away from his conscious wrath,
A tightly coiled snake up and strikes
Her venomous rage rampant
And poison tipped verbal spikes
Drove straight for my racing heart.
I sighed with pain and resignation,
As I accepted my fate.
Consumed with hate and alienation
I’ve chosen my mate

    You never know what pain is till you get there

    These tears that I cry
    You won’t be able to fix them
    You’re the reason why I cry to be precise
    What would I do without you and why can’t I get you out of my head
    Why does it hurts so much even when I think it’s not right for loving you
    Where do I go from here knowing that you’re no longer in my world?
    I can’t believe all this time, all these years I’ve waited for some romantic guy to take me away in his arms
    It’s been decades now and I still haven’t found my true love

    What is love?
    Does love hurt and why would something as wonderful as love hurt?
    Hurt is pain and with pain comes anger.
    Life wasn’t meant to be this way.
    Who started this and how will it ever end?

    I need to know because I want to have a life with love and if love hurts then what good is it?
    Does anyone love me, does anyone care for me? Who’s listening to me and who cares about the way I feel?
    I am with God? I know the one and true person who loves me is God but sometimes I fail to understand his doing and I only see my reflection and I ignore his.

    I want to be that kind of person who falls in love completely and so my partner does the same infinite. Remember those days of falling in love and getting hurt, “Oh boy, that was painful”. And I’m still going through the same old thing.
    Hurt, hurt, hurt!

    Probably I’m leaving in a fairy tale, looking for that Cinderella romance. I wish to have that Cinderella romance but without that cruel step mom and step sister. Couldn’t face that cruelty. No matter how hard I try there’s always going to be pain in my life.

    Or can I change it? But how? Do you know?

    Now it’s my turn to say W.O.W. The best poems, for my mind, are the tender and true.
    The elegance of this item is almost beyond compare. I do not puff hot air in complimenting this poem by a young beauty of a future, great writer/recorder.
