Dead Love

Poem By Clark Ashton Smith

The sun used to beam
through his window of life;
Until someone dared,
to pull down the blinds.
He wants to stand up
and defend what is right.
But the shackles of doubtfulness
impedes his process.

She wears makeup,
to cover the scars,
of her dashing hopes
and her broken heart.
She waits for Romeo
to take her in his arms.
But he won’t meet her
if her door is barred.

Someone once said
it’s better to have loved
then to never have
loved at all.
But those who have loved
have felt the heartache
and those who haven’t
have never won the game.

Sometimes life
deals us a bad hand.
But what we do with it
determines our outcome.

Comments about Dead Love

'Life's Poker Face'... be it cruel or be it nice... you put it nicely. oh to love... I wonder though, how life would be if we did not experience heart-ache, I know it is painful, but in time... we will understand why it is best to have loved and lost then to not have loved at all... -AMM-

۩ A Brainchild Of Both God And The Devil...Life! ۩

We're thrown hard into a world
that we know nothing about.
We're born small, weak, and speechless,
troubled with our thoughts of doubt!

Another Girl Robbed Of Her Esteem (When Will The Nightmare End?)

The demon takes shelter in her fear.
It awakens just prior to her slumber,
takes a hatchet to her insides,
and leaves her vulnerable in the night!

A Hidden Treasure!

Behind those thick-rimmed glasses
stands a woman with much potential.
She's bright, humorous, and beautiful;
But she doesn't realize it.

☼ A Natural Love! ☼

Your heart is my sun;
It brightens every day
and is always with me
wherever I go.

A Little Treasure Hunt

I clean my room in search
of fragments of old poetry.
I survey every note pad,
every sheet of scrap paper,

I’ll Meet You At Heaven’s Gate

I dreamt all day about you babe;
Which is no different, from other days.
I miss you dearly sweetheart;
You’ll always have a home in my heart.
