Evermore…………I stay on.

paper_boatIn the shallowness of your ‘Love Lake’

My fortunes of subsisting are very bleak.

I can neither vie to live nor to die,

Apart from airing an unsounded sigh;

Such is the astuteness of your love.

No matter how natural I submerge in you;

I manifest myself afloat

In your superficial waters;

Rowing my emotive boat.

In the hollowness of your heart,

I exist, sating vacuum of some sort.

Being a good deal in you,

In you, I lack a space.

Oh……….what a disgrace!

No matter how sorely, my heart bleeds;

To bide with you, is what it pleads.

Convinced, I am.

No matter how many oceans, my eyes shed;

They can ne’er puff up your shoal.

No matter how many times I call up you, dame;

Your cored out heart can never echo my name.

All the same…

In the shallowness of your love,

In the hollowness of your heart,

Evermore……………I stay on.

    What a great portrayal, and oh the sadness of the co-dependent heart.
    I read an above comment and noticed it is not your heart, thankfully.

      Thank you so much, Staci. I am honestly thankful for your kind concern too. I just do not have any sad love story so just invented one in my head. It was difficult to think being in someone’s shoes 😦
      Stay wonderful. 🙂

        Hi Reva. I am doing fine. I am gigling. Imagining that if it was you, you might just sigh ouch…okay…then off you move on, do the painting do the writing , show your wonderful soul to us all , or eaves-dropping the coffee cups gossiping new roomers 😆. Psstt I am having tea this week so I am staring at a beautiful garden with a princess in it,;I think there is a princess . I’ll make sure of it when I get home and tell you later 😊

    So beautifully sad this poem sounds,R.
    “No matter how many oceans, my eyes shed;
    They can ne’er puff up your shoal.”
    Lovely imagination used there.
    And this line “I exist, sating vacuum of some sort.” is heart wrenching.
    I hope this poem is not about you though. o.o

    Great work though. I love sad poems so I was absolutely consumed by the flawlessness of it! ❤
    Thanks for sharing, R! ❤

    Love and blessings

  10. It seems like lake I feel that I’ve drowned in many times… only to come back up and repeat the process again and again. Extremely emotive and relatable! 🙂
