A Love Unlived

A Love Unlived

A Poem by Devons


Though you may not even dare to dream
so hope dreams on eternal
the possibility of good
is always understood
while the mind so wise and knowing
protects you from the knife
the soul takes lies and cunning
to secretly seduce your heart
and take her for a wife

Your eyes have seen the smile before
your ears have heard the laugh
the possibility of good
is always understood
with sparkling eyes deception is playing
its charming tune for the snake
and coiling within, it is growing
to choke-off the brain, the caution of pain
and make you another mistake

You live and learn, to hurt again
experience must succeed
the possibility of good
is always understood
love is blind and takes some guiding
to lead it through a maze
that has no map and ever-winding
leads with lights you cannot see
but ever burn your gaze

We are such things as dreams
a life unlived for seeking
the possibility of good
is always understood
unknowing, a vista is blooming
beyond your shadowy wall
atop which romance is assuming
its unbalanced rights over pride
and together they fall

There were lives that were loves unlived
and lives have lived unloved
the possibility of good
is always understood
the dream that love was breeding
lived and breathed and died
and when Romeo stops breathing
the life unlived that love had dreamt
tragically survives

To love and lose, then never to love again, is like never having lived or loved at all.

Hope is ingrained so deeply in mankind, that no matter the travail, it will ever springs eternal; and I must end by saying that whilst I absolutely adore every line, every nuance of this poem; like Jacob, I found the last verse truly outstanding.

Beccy.

I think this poem should be dedicated to you...
these beautiful lines somehow reminded me of Glen Miller's ''Dreamsville'', the only hope is that our heart's unspoken desires will be materialized in some other life or world....that somehow, this universe will rearrange my particles in such a way, that i will reach perfection.....a splendid poem :)

Of course, my pleasure dear author.
I liked and I agree with your words.
"There were lives that were loves unlived
and lives have lived unloved
the possibility of good
is always understood
the dream that love was breeding
lived and breathed and died
and when Romeo stops breathing
the life unlived that love had dreamt
tragically survives"
Love is the biggest test and leave the largest scars. A powerful poem. Left the reader with something to think about. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Thank you very much indeed, Nisreenaa. Much appreciated.
the last stanza is a poem in itself for me...wow.

"there were lives that were loves unlived/and lives have lived unloved"
and "when romeo stops breathing...Tragically survives"

favorite play, love the reference...romantically, passionately tragic.
