Loveless Wonder (Poem)

I opened my book
invited you in
your character evolved
the plot thickened

Happy ending in sight
no end to our love
the pages had hope
even life from above

But you smeared the ink
before it could dry
not even whiteout
could save our goodbye

The dagger my soul
thrust deep within
I was lost for words
my heart left broken

I knew I was wrong
my first inclination
I surrendered to love
despite my hesitation

I gave you the benefit
despite having doubt
left now to wander
lifelessly without

No explanation why
not even a plea
is this really over
how can it be

No thoughts of your own
not even a word
your silence my death
all I wanted your love

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
