Must This Be Goodbye

Must This Be Goodbye

A Poem by Lyingwithlions


Must this be goodbye?

Will a time ever come again,

When I look into and get lost in,

Eyes which fill me with such pleasure


During days and nights of wonder,

Holding on to memory's and dreams

Unshared and always treasured


These words I write to you my friend,

With hopes they keep you from despair

Also to show how much I cared...

For you


Tenderly and cautiously yet honestly...

A wish come true

Even if now the beauty with-in your eyes

Does not reflect with-out what they did to me


Crying for the love,

That did not come from you

From the first time I sat down beside you,

When looking into your eyes, and deep down with-inside you...

I knew


In that moment I made you smile,

My heart became yours

While time went by as we talked by phone

I often lost my breath In hearing your sighs


I couldn't wait to hold you,

And Couldn't stand to say goodnight

Then the first time I Finally felt you in my arms...

I knew


As I kissed your lips, to taste your breath

Mesmerized by your beauty,

Overwhelmed with desire by your caress...

I knew


Making love for the first time,

Over and over Again under the full moon

That shined across the water so true...

I knew


I could truly love you


Now I find myself here,

Wondering if I can keep this heart of mine from breaking

By taking back these moments I shared with you...

I wouldn't


Even if it these memory's I have of you,

Which cause this pain

From missing your smile and touch

Leaving me never to be the same...

I couldn't


So I'll embrace this hurt,

Accept what I can not change

Forever to hold onto,

A love for which I hold no shame


Even behind my anger,

I enjoyed your ways

Along with the way you made me feel...

As I fell for you


Then tore my heart on a woman,

I loved yet barely knew


Now I don't want to open my eyes,

For fear of losing the dreams

I fight myself not to let go


I know as I cry,

Searching my mind

Asking my heart why?


Before my last tear falls,

I'll find the answer why...

Must this be goodbye?


It's tearing me to pieces,

As I'm scorn by the reasons

Why did you have to lie to me?


While the tears still flow,

I realize I may never know


Returning back to my lonely road

Missing you and wishing you,

A happy and loving life


To me you will always be a deserving angel,

One I have never truly known

Nor could I ever wish to hold on to


So now free as you were when I met you,

As when I left you

On the side of the road

After blowing you a kiss goodbye


It was truth that I was denied


As I open my eyes,

To wipe this last tear away

Caused by the fact that I was blind to see...

You didn't feel the same way about me

Ah yes, unrequited love. It has inspired such great poetry. It's the sweet, sweet pain of it all.

Eyes which feel me with such pleasure---Eyes which FILL me with such pleasure

With hopes they keep you with care
Also to show how much I cared...----the double use of care interrupted the flow for me

Then the first time I Finlay felt you in my arms...---finally felt you in my arms

Hope this helps. :-)

Thank you! I'm happy that you liked it. :)

How we all share these ideals, the love, the expressive feelings of emotions devoted lost in another's love. Just shows we are all human! Excellent piece!

Thank you for reading. :)
Goodbye is so hard to say, to accept, and to move on afterwards! Your thoughts are heartfelt and filled with longing!
Beautiful but sad expressions of a love that cannot be!

I agree, yet I'm very thankful to where those feeling have led me. And to whom they have led me.read more
Your gift for poetry shines here in this very touching write. It is so true what they say that it is better to have love and lost than not love at all but it does not take away the heart ache it can leave behind. This is simply beautiful!

I was already touched right from the start of this emotional piece. And some more on the last part. Beautifully written!
