Please tell Me

Please tell Me

A Poem by Valentine

      Please Tell Me

 

Just what would it take,

for me...

to reach inside

of your heart?

Stir up all of

the old memories

we once had,

before love did depart.

How can I

reach deeply into

your heart and

into your soul?

Try to recapture

just what is needed,

to help me make

my life again whole.

Will you let old

memories walk

slowly through your

heart and your mind.

Uncover pictures

of the bliss

and heaven found

in sweet olden times.

Please let me

take a few

moments to bask

in the distant past.

The long days before

our love fell apart

with no chance

to ever last!

Just what would it take,

to reach inside of

your  heart

and reach your soul?

Find the broken

pieces needed

to make our lives

again whole.

Valentine,
"Please tell me.." is a stunning and brave, vulnerable foray into the reality of a bygone life. Thanks for giving this poem Kathie. sixth paragraph "Take a few moments to bask in the distant past." This is so cool and just a way of seeing the human heart want to re-visit and process something that is lost. Loss is a bummer and we people are complex in how we think and let go of old but very real and precious relationships. Near the end: "Just what would it take to reach inside your soul?" You have given the voice of all the broken and lost hearts to share in experience......................Bless you.......................Kathy

You read the heartbreak right out.
I wasn't sure what sort of heartbreak it was, till i read the review below. Drugs. You don't really need to say anything after that.

I'm so sorry to hear that... Drugs are the biggest murderer or dreams , love and life
It is sometimes difficult to gather the remaining pieces of broken relationship and start all over again, but one has to try.

I think at times men can't come to gripes with something as beautiful as love. You may reach his heart and soul but never instill those old times.

A soft sadness that lends itself to your woe. Nice write!

Well, Sweet Poetess,
I've no idea how it was before you enhanced it, but if it is anything like this version, I can just hear all the guy's (maybe, gals, too) hearts a'swoon from the sheer bliss-filled tenderness and romantic warmness only a knowing lady can express in such a way that lures your reader and holds them close and tight from first to last word, and who could resist:

"let me
take a few
moments to bask
in the distant past"

If this didn't have him running straight back into your arms, he's too far gone to fool with, and a younger or more willing man might just fit the bill … um-hm!
Whew, your imagery is irresistibly fetching! I could go on, but if I said everything I''d like to I'll be here all night,and I'm sure you'd rather sleep than listen to me, eh'? ; )
Warmest hug of thanks to you! ⁓ Rascal
