Affairs of the Heart

For every man
who wins her heart
A man stands in shadows
torn apart

For every woman 
who finds her man
three are broken
unable to stand

Sunrise could not find him in  heart's shadow
No sharper edges wrought to cleave those bindings;
locking the pain with loss and despair
another had won her love. 

disregard replete; he moves
one to another, another; and another 
now in bliss, remiss of those memories,
he weds while broken stems alter Sunrise
no longer kissing their lips
hands only brushed the pearl of their veils now
fingered shards, shred them to shrouds 
three to cover each.

*the first two verses were one of those "flash inspirations" one has the tendency to think they are genius, only to throw them out when read later ..i know you all know what i mean ... but i didn't throw them out because it "felt" right .. so i added the second two verses ... trying to say the same thing in a bit different way ... would love to know your thoughts on them

Dear Mr E. I found your poem moving. It also brought a memory back of an aunt by marriage I was very fond of. She really cared for me at a time my parents were 400miles away. I was young. She said to me to hang on to my man and look after him because there were other women round every corner waiting to prise him away. She wasn't wrong there, that's exactly what happened.

That loss is incredibly difficult to deal with, there was much pain and I sensed that in your lines you yourself understand that loss. Loving someone who doesn't feel the same way about you sucks. Sometimes you may meet someone else, but that broken trust shatters the heart and it takes one hell of a lot of glue to stick it back together.

Do not bin this piece. You have much to say here. This reader fekt your words on an emotional level.

Hello E!
Very interesting observations made here and I loved reading them. Life is indeed a bit unfair in love and war and the fittest get away with the best. Its seldom a level playing field. I personally feel that we are all at the giving as well as the receiving end of rejection at some points in our lives and it just contributes to our growth. As I take stock of my life so far, I have little to complain about. I do sincerely feel that we should not look back once a chapter is closed, saving us and others a lot of angst in the future. I agree with Chris. There's so much you've given your reader to think about.

I often wonder which learned more the one that won the pursuit or the one who lost? I can say the one who loses remembers it better. Losing brings us humility.

This is so beautifully written. I am quite awestruck actually. Such a crisp, clean use of words about much more than just its top layer of meaning. And I speak from experience of a lot of this.To use your words Gene. Wonderful says I. Simply beautifully written.

At the risk of gushing I'm so glad about that.
You are a marvelous writer. Every journey has its steps, ups and downs. Every adventure has its clues, winning and loses. I take your message in that regard of life's realities. Relationships are not easy. Outcomes are not cheap.

Much obliged and muchly welcome.
The first cut is the deepest as the song goes and after a heart has been broken, I am not sure it ever totally heals. Unfortunately, in almost every relationship, there is one who loves more than the other...and that starts the problem. Such an emotional write....you are a keen observer of the human condition.

I think we humans are essentially selfish creatures. We often use others as skipping stones, and in turn become skipping stones ourselves. So it's a kind of a cycle of breaking and mending trusts and finding the right one in between, although I do think some are the 'right one' for us at that particular time...just my take and what your poem here made me think over..I like your imagery especially in the last three lines. Interesting piece.

Very sad and true and sometimes
the one we want doesn't want us
or we can't have them and other
times we get to have them and
they want us.


Sad but nicely inked

If I was to suggest you are a Gene e us.. you would larf at me.. so am just gonna keep shtum... I just love the way you play with words.. how ya stack em and lay em and all.. relationships are of course never straight forward, they convolute and peak like the tone of some any of your poems... and no two are likely to be the same.. each has their own individual complexities... a E noodle thumbprint....
