A Poem by KCthelastboyscout

taking a chance at love again

Can you smile for me? I need light to see out of this darkness. Will you kiss me? I want to feel the grace of heaven without dying. Will you love me? I want to believe my life is meaningful to someone else... You reach out your hand to me. Reluctantly, I accept. I've been through this before. This pain is everlasting. I look into your eyes. Say the familiar words. I WILL NEVER HURT YOU. I WILL NEVER LET YOU GO. The hurt still remains.I did not land in a safe place from the fall. You tell me to believe in hope Keep my faith in God. These are foreign words to me. Belief. Faith. God. You pull me into your embrace and I become helpless in your arms... A quiet moment. I take a long deep breath and exhale. The tears build up in my eyes and overrun down my face. The walls inside of me break down, brick by brick, until all that's left is what you claim. My trust... This is a new and old love.Created in the arms of a woman comforting the man she loves.

What an inspiration this woman is to you. It is so difficult to forget and overcome a devastating lose of love. BUT to be able to find a new love with someone willing to help you in your struggle, that is the true magic of love. The ability to have faith and give you faith again. Beautifully written.

Wonderful use of words and thoughts. I like the wishes and the want of the words. You are right. Woman control our world. Make it sweet or a living hell. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Trust is more difficult that love itself. The two should go hand in hand, but it is not always the case.

A very beautiful write, so much emotion and imagery.. comfort relieves such pain but that comfort is only temporary, like you said - this pain is everlasting.. If we are not happy within ourself, how can we truly be happy with someone else? You speak of god, having faith, and his love as something foreign to you.. I pray that will change for you my friend. Thank you for sharing this write, it was very thought provoking.

Dear friend, though this is short piece but powerful, powerful with the clear feelings You've expressed perfectly... Your huge pain I felt, Your broken heart I felt, Your numbness and desperate I felt, sometimes our love renewed in such deep, emotional, intimate moments, like we are falling in love over again, this can give but more progress and growth to the true love, but when it's not a true love, but more like unrequited or dependent one, we will stuck again, and it will need so much courage in spirit, practicing in our mind if we decided one day to end this situation, not easy, not easy AT ALL...

I wish Your love but the true one, more of happiness and peace with the sounds of beautiful two hearts singing as one.

Beautiful words.
How true that sometimes that the most overwhelming feeling of safety can come to us in the form of another person.

Best, Sunny
