I love you

I love you

A Poem by Magdelena

In my heart of all hearts, I say unto you
I love you.
Such simple words are they
Yet with more meaning than any other I shall ever say.

Thrilling, you once made me feel
Sunsets of meaning passed before my eyes
Moonlit nights, shown their rays upon my form
Then.. darkness..
So deep that blinded I became
Thrashing about, vines grasped within my thoughts
Holding tightfisted to all I posses
Releasing not a drop of sanity
Not an ounce for moment of rest.
My wondrous soul has for-passed all within
Now I am an open sore with no bandage;
to stop the flow of blood from seeping out.

I yearn for meaning to my pain
To answers only you can give
Like twine they hold bondage
My memories of you and I
To only set fire to all till they wither and die.
For my heart I gave, sent forth with trust
Yet you tossed aside
With not even a thought.
And I die.. Each second, each moment
For only emptiness stands instead
The vines that hold
Now gripping like steel.

To say I can go on
Oh such a lie
Falsity in itself for only my pride
To wander beneath myself
All unholy that is waiting for my mistakes.
Yet none I can make,  for they left along with my heart.
Nightfall has come upon me
I sit and stare
Yet you are not there.
Only the darkness reaches for me
To take hold once again
Of all I dream, of memories once shared.
Yet before it claims, I send forth my whisper
To hell with pride
For let me be the sinner. 
My darling...
I love you...

Beautiful love poem
your words captured many of the ups and downs of falling in love
also capture the pain and sadness
Deep emotions that goes on in relationships
grasped the reader( Me ) making the reader grasped the
essences of this brilliant piece
Love the flow and i love the entire poem
Outstanding Piece!

Beautiful, Magdalena.. and we all sin ... and we can't help who we love.. even if we get hurt.

This was intense heartbreak,
but still a beautiful work of art.
Another gem.

A love that proves not all things are meant to be, no matter how much we may love another we cant make anyone feel the same way, love can be a minefield for those who dare to rush in. A well expressed poem :)
