Found

March 11, 2010ishabelle

I want to apologize if the poem below may be a little confusing. I wrote this for today’s rally, and I hope you still enjoy this. Thank you so much for visiting… :)xoxo

Sometimes I avoid love songs
Because they only speak of beauty
Or the pain that, in their hearts, throbs
But a song that shows reality,
I have yet to find.

I read through the lyrics and I
sometimes do not find what it is I seek
I look for something like yours and mine
I guess writing about us will do the trick,
I have yet to find.

Our love is not the sunshine
That brightens each other’s day
No, we are but the sunset that glows golden
Warm nights that we haven’t spent cuddled close,
I have yet to find.

We do not bring each other springtime
That makes everything bright and beautiful
We are all the four seasons, bright or dark
A season of love and madness such as ours,
I have yet to find.

We are not the something new in life
That we always wanted and dreamed of
We are the familiar face, the familiar touch
We’ve been together even before the forever that
I have yet to find.

We are not one heart and one soul
Nor a pair of wings that fly together
We are two hearts that beat separately
But two hearts that beat with love such as ours,
I have yet to find.

    so beautifully sad…
    //But two hearts that beat with love such as ours,
    I have yet to find.// this touched me… its so brilliantly penned… the deepest desire of any human so well expressed …

    I think this verse says it all…

    “We do not bring each other springtime
    That makes everything bright and beautiful
    We are all the four seasons, bright or dark
    A season of love and madness such as ours,
    I have yet to find.”

    Love songs don’t talk about all the seasons and many of us don’t stick with our relationships through all the seasons. Instead, we pick & choose when we want to be in and when we’re out. That is not what love “does”. Love is steadfast, enduring, timeless.

    Love this Ishabelle!

    Utterly beautiful ishabelle! this one verse alone sums up all of the purity love, in the entire poem. Please see what I have also said in a long comment on your other page about the beauty of your writing and your poetry.

    Salamat, dear ishabelle

    Sige 🙂

    This is a very nice poem you’ve written. 🙂
    You have a certain way with words that I can’t grasp. I’m not good with keeping things coherent, I guess. ^_^
