Heartache

Heartache

A Poem by denise
"

what we want, we cannot always have

"

I lie quiet, calm,

The sheets cool,

The twilight close, comforting

His hand traces the curve of my hip, caressing, caring,

He is here

Cutting the silence

I smile,

My mind,

Soothed, assuaged,

My body warms,

My need intensifies

I yearn,

My heart still bleeds,

Broken

Never whole

Wanting the unattainable

Written so beautifully, the want or need which seems to be just out of reach, or perhaps a memory of what we have had in the past, all too fleetingly. Put alongside your comment regarding wanting what we can't have, the song you can't always get what you want is now playing in my head....Yet the one thing that we do have is hope, no matter how far from our horizon it seems.

This was gentle, warm, painful... How true it is that we can have many blessings and yet feel a sense of need, wanting more.

The short, pithy lines create a world of aching reality.

Your writing is a kind of swings and roundabouts, introspective yet shared with whoever.. You're a herald, speaking out for the right to express what needs be said, no apology, no may i ...

This is written so beautifully and speaks of so much sadness, I love it. Very relatable. Also not to short and didn't drag on for too long which is nice!

When you want someone whom you simply cannot have, the best thing is to relax, step back and not invest so much into that someone (no matter how difficult that may be). Good flowing poetically astute write - a quiet reflection of inner need! :-)

Though unattainable, the thrill of the chase never wanes!

Penned with yearning desire and poetic passion aplenty!
