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.

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

You're welcome it was an enjoyable read.👍😁
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....

Well just throw them in the bin fella!
Kidding! They certainly made me think about the complexity and yet the random and simple nature of relationships. It seems that we often bounce from infatuation to infatuation/attraction to attraction. We meet people randomly but often they are out of reach, spoken for or simply disinterested in us. Many of us settle eventually for the possible and are thankful of it. And yet the memories, the yearning and the thought of 'what if' sometimes persists.
