Receding Love

Receding Love

A Poem by Poetic Beauty
"

Sometimes you hate what you can see coming

"
She is slowly destroying you
Quietly taking you apart
One minuscule shard at a time
Silently robbing you of air

She is leaving you empty
Giving you a false sense of hope
A single fragment of sunlight
Dimming as the days trickle on

She keeps you clinging to shadows
Letting you grasp at nothing
An illusion of a phantom love
That evaporated long ago

She is receding from your touch
Pulling back with a gentle force
A movement you barely notice
Until her love is out of reach

She is creating chaos within you
Come rest beside me peacefully
I will surround you with warmth
Allowing you to find comfort

Relax your disarrayed mind
I will embrace you tightly
Holding you until sleep comes
Giving you a safe harbor

Let your thoughts become quiet
As slumber settles over you
We will surrender to calm
Locking out the stress of the day

No one should ever
want an illusion of
a phantom love
an emptiness that
leads to nothingness
the last part is much
more the reassuring
positive love. a warmth;
glow of comfort for
happiness...

A true soul mate is one who always stand by his/her partner, more so when he is in dire need. May be he is unconscious of the looming danger but a loving heart can see it and also the resulting fall. It's this specific time when a gentle caring embrace can save him from his fall and comfort him, that he needed badly. I appreciate this kind of love.... You portrayed it finely

Of love that is breaking you and receding eh, the first stanzas so creatively expressed wow, though the last two stanzas show like moving on or relaxing the hold . Kudos.

This is one of the best poems I've read in 2021! I am all in! You have depicted the insidious lover so well, so recognizable, could be male or female . . . we all squirm as we feel the chagrin, remembering when we were taken in by such cheap, shallow, counterfeit affection. I had this happen to me at the cafe last year & then I watched this scourge continue on to transfix & mystify others. I love how the language you use is as smooth and insidious as this kind of lover can be . . . no big rant, no emphatic pronouncements, no diatribe . . . just the slow suffocating unfolding of falsity (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

These lines are a comfort blanket. Where love is ebbing away from one heart it is of great value to know that it is overflowing in another. I felt love and understanding here for someone whose emotions are in turmoil. Words of generosity.
