~Nothing Else Matters~

~Nothing Else Matters~

A Poem by AprilRN1210
"

.........

"




“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.”

Henry David Thoreau




 






No matter what we’ve been through

you’ve given me hope for something new

trying to dry all the tears that I’ve cried

dying to feel alive… again… inside.

 

Accepting the way I feel for you

has opened my eyes to a different view

no longer trapped in cracked mirrors

seeing facts a whole lot clearer.

 

A world apart stands a simple man

holding my heart within his hands

spilling the sand, we watch it scatter

love expand s--so nothing else matters.

 

When the madness of sadness starts to creep in

I’m stronger-no longer- do I have to pretend

fear fades with each breath that I take

shaking charades made by mistake.

 

Trust I feel and I share with you

kinship of friendship accrued and grew

we’ll get through each path we choose to pursue

these three words don't always spell disaster

I’ll be loving you and nothing... else... matters.

Oh , my Romanticism . Haven't seen this for a while. In fact is not very common around here (The cafe). The use of intense emotion as an authentic source of aesthetic experience, placing new emphasis on such emotions as apprehension, horror and terror, and awe. In this writing we find all of them. In fact this is probably the "darkest " writing I have ever read from you. I can only assume the reasons are clearly described in the writing so there is no need to put them on show. I really relate to the gesture of the writing. You standing at the top of the castle, bruised and battered emotionally , a storm coming, winds , grey skies falling upon you , your black cloak and the image of the sun at the distance in its reflection that person that will still be there for you until the bitter end.

Nothing else would matter.

Thankyou

Thank you so much for the thoughtful review. I appreciate it..
Excellent poem! Too often we allow all the small insignificant things to cloud our mind and fail to realize the great thing we have before our eyes. Love is true, cruel, painful, yet is pure, kind, and awesome when we are with the one meant for "you". Very sweet description of a love that's true and your choice in song empathizes this good work.

couldn't agree more... and yes, one of my favorites... thank you:)
True love is stronger than any other human emotion. It can, and does conquer all. It's power can sometimes of course be its undoing, but the last stanza pretty much says it all; nothing else matters when there is trust, friendship and love, they are an unbeatable combination. T

Thank you!. I am glad you enjoyed:)
Nothing else matters - I love you - three words that when said in a certain way or context could be interchangable - in this clever writing April you expanded the lovers phrase vocabulary - can I add mine to it on your page - I'll be right here ...
The soothing voice in this was like a long hug. thanks for sharing, thanks for hugging ;)
