Faceless

Faceless

A Poem by Iota
"

This is an older poem before I had a real girl friend. It is still a love poem thou just not a happy one.

"

I don’t want to be the person who has to

love alone in a populated world full of people.

I don’t want to be that dependable friend

who is always there to pick up the pieces.

 

I don’t wish to be that call at 4:00 am

because I am the only person who listens.

How do I fill this ache that burns deep inside,

When you don’t hear or notice my words that bleed?

 

Why can’t you see the pain I feel each day?

even when we hug it is never close enough,

strong enough and truly never long enough.

My eyes should tell you that it is you who I love.

 

I can’t imagine a single day in this world

without living it with you to eternity times twelve.

You make me feel so high above life that no one

can ever touch a single hair on my body.

 

My heart sings in the most beautiful love notes

that gives thanks and praise to the woman you are.

I don’t want to hear the silence of our love story.

The quiet scares me because it screams the truth!

 

I am just another friend, who has

fallen too deeply in love with you.

 

Alone in the torture of this reality.

I am the faceless lover whom roams this earth.

loving a woman who doesn’t even recognize

that I want her more than my own life.

I so remember having a best woman friend and being head over heels in love with her and she never gave me the time of day. So glad those days are over.

It is a gift how you write straight from your heart and are not afraid to show how you feel.

I loved this piece and I can totally relate to much of what is expressed here. I especially like the line "Alone in the torture of this reality"...this is great.

p.s. there are a very large cadre of love poems that are not happy ones.. and to be honest? those are some of the best, because they strip aside the rosy hued glasses and show the life blood beneath

mmm yes. i know this place well. far too often i was the puzzle piece fitter and the spilled drink wiper. *sigh* this brought to mind all the times i ached with a secret fire for someone who did not register the need in my eyes even existed..

so eloquent and .. i just don't even have words

Really good work..I mean the emotion passed on well.
The first two stanzas seemed a little harsh until I read the whole thing. I'm all for being there for friends and the people you love..but I'm sure it hurts real bad when that's taken for granted and the love's never returned.
Good write.

Oh, boy did this one resonate with me *laughs* I've definitely felt this, especially in the beginnings of my own relationship, when I was still working out what I was feeling. How it is you manage to get each detail hit home so well, I will never ask. Your poetry is beautiful.

This is an amazing write troy! I loved it!

I have this weird feeling in my heart. This poem is very emotional yet it has so much beauty surrounding it. It sucks knowing that the person you love doesn't seem to see that at all when they look at you. I really enjoyed reading this. This is sad, but I can feel the passion as I read. Simply beautiful.
