~ True Love ~

~ True Love ~

A Poem by Legacy
"

Silent promise once made, left Drowning in a sour glass of wine. Does True Love ever die?

"

 

 

Tr.u.e. L.o.v.e.
 ‘Bridges’ yet crossed - or even burned
 

That afternoon in autumn,

 

 the Sun began releasing ‘Her Tears of Hope’,

 

 Standing there embracing,

 

looking up, as a light mist caressed our faces…

 

True Love, Indeed… the strongest, matched by no other
Lost in attraction, steady ones breath, are you listening?
Interpersonal love, shaped of elements of fallacy -
Spawns the birth, now borne of Love or Infatuation?
 
Jane Doe: “When we talk, you're always attentive to everything”
John Doe: “I Love how you cook, clean and treat me like a King”
 
Love begins of innocence, nothing short of harmless
Craving sense of mystery, passing boundaries, no expectations
Desire to please; you do not want to possess…
Engulfed in Flames of shadowed passions, your heart at rest!
 
Jane Doe: “You used to dive in, exploring my shores”
John Doe: “You appreciated, respected my Love. Now…you Expect so-much-more.”
 
Choices made, perceptions viewed, push to shove…
Could you spend your life, 24 hours a day with the one you Love?
Can Love last forever…? What do we 'choose' to sacrifice…? Exactly…  
Explore the nature, understanding the function of Love.
 
Jane Doe: “Ashamed I am, concealing pain with silent cries " you never cared”
John Doe: “You thrive on mind games of torment and despair”
 
Pain vibrates, shattered dreams, crossing lines of gray
Tomorrow, soon will deliver an 'envelope of dismay'
Rhythm of dance, life once treasured, now lost forever…
To each left scars, unseen, chiseled within their soul...
 
Jane Doe: “I guess you never really loved me at all!”
John Doe: “Go ahead and take another picture off the wall!”
 
 
 
On first glance, Love (First Love, for the second time, third or so-on)
We believe this is {True Love}…
 
Is this possible?
Do we have an idea of their favorite color, number, T.V. show and/or what makes them (tick)?
No~… We seem to judge the visible aspects such as appearance, smell, things outwardly that pulls us in.
 
Can Love really be defined?  Does True Love ever fail us?
 Are 'We' willing to work through differences together? (Not by looking in front of 'Us')
 We seem to exclude ourselves " that’s right… This is a one-way-street, right…?
Love...in all facets -
A development of ‘who we are'...Want to ‘be’...What we can ‘do/be’ for others…
SILENT PROMISE 'ONCE MADE', LEFT DROWNING IN A SOUR GLASS OF WINE... 
Does True Love 'Ever Die'...?

A unique format made this fun to read.....the stanzas in red, to me, are like a narrator speaking his piece, and then his voice fades away in time for the vignettes of dialogue.

I can easily see this acted out on a stage with spot lighting alternating between Jane & John Doe and the narrator, who is off to the side.

A wonderfully insightful write about the cycles of love and human relationships.

re-read this again because I like it and I enjoyed re-reading this story. It was interesting and sweet with a few different emotions that captured the words in bringing them to life.

An intriguing write! To answer the question about True Love. True Love never dies; no matter the conflict, disagreements, annoyances... it is just physically, mentally, spiritually and soulfully impossible to sever the bond.

With respect and admiration,

This speaks volumes - well done! I like the way you interplayed the little conversations and how they changed over time.

Love the way you interrupt in conversation accurately. Love can indeed feel as though on is breaking away from what is normal life because True love to me has no explanation :)
I love the quality of poetry that the reader can answer on their own. Great questions!

A story within a poem is one of the best ways to describe an emotion or moral, I think you captured that very nicely and your use of colours and fonts only added to the smooth flow of it

This poem spoke to me. I have found this poem had a lot of concrete, down to earth, truths in it. True love is hard to define and you describe that well. And you define it well by alternating between Jane Doe's row and the intertwining stanza's describing true love. I really liked it and have read it a good few times. No doubt I'll read it again!
