In Her Hands

In Her Hands

A Poem by Wynter Ignatius
"

In every choice is a heart break, in ever heart beat there is love...

"
In her hands,
Is every tear drop ignored,
Salted pain unnoticed,
In her hands,
Is every piece of her heart,
You promised would never part.

In her hands,
Is every blank stare so true,
Timed to heartbeats,
In her hands,
Is every moment passed by,
Leaving her alone to just cry.

In her hands,
Is every kiss not given,
Staining stale air, In her hands,
Is every laugh she has shared,
With someone whom truly has cared.

In her hands,
Is every heart she loves,
Some edging off,
In her hands,
Is every time you didn't smile back,
Leaving her shocked by sudden lack.

In her hands,
Is every intimate moment between,
Now dusty decay,
In her hands,
Is every sweet word not spoken,
For this is leaving her heart broken.

In her hands,
Is every dream she has had,
Some fading away,
In her hands,
Is every "I love you" now lost,
For only an end will show the cost.

this is so beautifully heartbreaking... you write this with such a gentleness and understanding... it shows just how much you care, how deeply you see, and how carefully you adore... those small details that you highlight throughout this piece are so moving. they reach out and smack the reader each time and leave you feeling the pain, the heartache, the need, the longing, the void, the hope, the dreams a little bit more each time until you are sitting here a raw, jumbled up emotional heap... I absolutely adore this piece... the tear drops ignored.... kisses and affection not shown.... no smiles or laughter..... the sweet, encouraging, affectionate words never spoken..... the dreams they crushed.... these all take their toll on a soul and a relationship until it becomes broken and realize that they deserve so much better.... what an awesome piece.... love it...

She does because I can feel it. I may know her better than I know myself.

When someone is close to heart, things like this result from pen to page.
Love shines through in this poem. Fresh, sweet, sad, hurting, tender love. I can see you are a kind, warm and passionate man. You love with all your heart and soul, I hope she treasures you. For surely your love surpasses hers any day.. you must love her much more than she can ever love you :-) and I know what the rejoinder to this will be. But I am a poet and can see something not many can understand; immeasurable love. unconditional , all encompassing... stay blessed my friend

i love this :) Honest, open, a good, simple metaphor easy to understand and with a nice rythm to it. very vivid but subtle imagery of a relationship going sour.
