Redundancy…

eternal 
You told me you loved me,
told me fate had played a part
in bringing us together,
that I had touched
your heart.
You showered me
with little things
you thought
my heart desired,
except for one,
a need to know…
was my love
at                  
all     
required?

  2. Very well put, LadyP. From a mere male (😉 ) point of view, it can work both ways. The one sided selfish attitude I mean. I hope you won’t let this one experience colour any future relationships, for that would be a shame. (that’s if this was a ‘life experience’ poem) x

  4. Ah, Lady Pen, you are worth so much love, my friend. Anyone who can not see, hear, and read what a heart you are is simply blind.

    • You are wonderful for my self esteem, Deb,… hugs to you, and isn’t it strange how you can look at something from a distance and suddenly it hits you, full in the face… maybe blinded at the time by emotion I suppose… hugs , and more hugs aplenty.. xPenx

  5. it’s funny. Everything we loved about the other person initially, is what we want to change later on.

    • is that a part of human nature, Arjun, or just something we learn?… It’s like a slap in the face to learn you’re suddenly not quite ‘right’ I don’t think I’ve tried to change anyone, at least to my knowledge, .. erm… other than ‘do you mind leaving the toilet seat down’ …😉 xx

      • Human nature. How hard one resists not to change but they do, to sustain the relationship. They call it love. some surrender…some eventually with constant manipulation. It’s a stupid battle of who’s in control or what’s right. Fact is, the two in a relationship dilute in the process doesn’t matter who wants to change whom.

        • I suppose two people, living together, somethings got to give, … and we change ourselves anyway by growing older, gaining insights and different values, Some things I believed growing up, I now laugh about,..you live and you learn,or stagnate, the same with relationships..

  11. I think that this wonderful poem will ring true
    for so many that read it, all with thoughts and
    memories that are authentic and yet the part
    that is so special has been lost in the mist of
    time. Perhaps the reality is still alive, but just
    hidden out of sight. Life is like that I guess?😦

    Have a really lovely
    weekend Lady Pen🙂🙂

    You are loved by many friends here… so sending you Big Smiles… and know your work and love is soon going to be put to work Very soon in all you do and share…

    • Thank you Sue, lessons are always being learned. I know for a fact this person was not the right one for me, but for some reason I kept trying to find what was lacking in me, rather than the other way round. Only in hindsight did I get the full picture.., suddenly the focus altered by me needing space to see what was wrong. Hugs to you for your lovely comment, and thank you for being a friend. love and light xPenx
