Passing Through

Passing Through

A Poem by Chris
"

Inspired by a poet who left a response on a poem of mine, telling me he had never been in love. He wasn't young either.

"
how starved are those who pass on by
who hold no favour for romance
who do not crave another's love
reserved, reticent they may be
who do not comprehend that they
have lost life's purpose on the way
they may have travelled here in time
but oh what moments they have missed
a door locked shut a key won't turn
they came they saw they never lived

I agree dear Chris. We miss what we didn't do, didn't say. In old age. We look back and we wonder. Did I do enough for love? Thank you dear Chris for sharing your amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Hello dear Chris and you are welcome.
So full of heartache, Love can be lost and some just walk away instead of trying to fix it, Been going through this myself. Well expressed

Really?! is it true?!? I don't know I think people have different ways of love and living love, maybe he has his own way not all can be opened and living the high emotions of love, it can be scary to some and they prefer to stick on earth, they feel safe like that, or they have fear of betrayal and hurt, protecting their hearts like that? maybe they lacked love as children so they don't know how it feels or how to give and take? I do also know not all like the romantical essence of lovet, I don't know many things to adress here... I think maybe he did fall in love but he wasn't even aware that he was?

It's better to have loved a little than never to have loved at all. A friend once told me that. I'm still on the fence about that.

Thank you Silent1. I do agree with your comments. All good wishes.

I can't imagine one
who has never sought
love; to love and be
love is the essence
of happy life..even
if love is brief and
lost in the end
it's something one
should experience

nicely penned

I agree! I don't understand this. How much they have missed because of a fear of feeling i guess. Ugh!

Living and loving someone is real and so human. Being alone or just afraid of that is missing too.. read more
