In The Dark Of Night

In The Dark Of Night

A Poem by Suelou


In the dark of night I think of you
When there's not even one sound
I remember way back then when
True love was felt all around

We couldn't wait until we were alone
To explore the new treasures we possessed
Your warm and tender embrace
Is something I have truly missed

You don't know how many times I wished
We could go back to the way we were then
When you and I had first met that night
You always came to see me every weekend

It seems that after all this time the pain
Would have gone completely away
But, that just isn't true for me at all
It seems to always want to stay

What happened to 'til death do you part?
What happened to always and forever?
Those feelings I had felt inside me
Could never have been any stronger

What was suppose to be always and forever
Seemed to have suddenly come to an end
The love I felt for you deep inside me
Never was just pretend

Oh, there is no better feeling than a beginning of a relationship and the joy that are held ours heart. Sadly when things end, that joy turns to great pain. This is heartfelt and written beautifully...

I have missed reading your work. As usual this is wonderful. It takes one where you intend, feeling the emotions of always and forever of what once was, and Never was just pretend. Great piece of work Rose! Enjoyed!! :)

Wow! You are such a good poet!
Having had many a partner untie those knots of emotion. I know just the emotion that this peice speaks of.
You really know how to capture life as it should be and how we wish it would be.

The beginning of a relationship when all is new and you cannot give enough of one to another. Sadly sometimes one decides it is time to part. But the other still retains the feelings within their heart. A beautiful poetic statement of the agony the agony the one that is left in a severed relationship suffers. You give insight to your feelings without remorse. Thank you for sharing these intimate thoughts with us. You speak from the heart.

I think it's good to remember happier days even when relationships are no longer viable. Maybe we tend to what that special someone to be a different person than reality reveals. I find your poem very honest and real. Thank you for sharing, Sue.
