She’d like to think they were like the sun
and earth, their paths inevitable.
She’d like to think they were
crazy for each other.
But maybe she was crazy for him
and he simply sane for her.
Her yearning overtly personal.
His covertly distant.
She saw the light around his face,
besotted with his essence.
The planets orbiting as
morning and evening came.
And she knows now what he felt
for her was temporal- affection
and trust but without the romantic
notions she longed for.
A tragedy for her.
A comedy for him.
Two bodies flying through the sky,
one pushing closer.
The other pulling away.
Always drifting and wafting
at a heartbreaking distance.
A whim of the atmosphere
and unwoken eyes.

  1. One always wonders in this kind of situation, if better communication earlier on would have helped. If she told him she was falling in love with him and wasn’t afraid and said he wasn’t feeling it with her, it could’ve saved a lot of time and heartbreak. On the other hand, maybe she liked being with him, even if she knew his feelings. Maybe she hoped he’d change. Girls and Women often do this. Great poem.

      1. I may just get a stick, a background ack etc and just wander and end up back on the east coast as this has all been promises that were not delivered and I am busting my butt here

      2. Yes indeed but a great distraction would make all easier as well as a great place to be. The homeless rate here is about 25 percent and than are prostitutes just off the strip it’s crazy

      3. Yes it sure does. I had promises not given info on and all have worse issues than I do but they are worked no 50-60 hrs to be broke and I’m having pain issues working half of that. Then again I’m on the floor
