No One

A cynic of love

Never will believe

One person

Can truly make

Him happy

He feels that

There is no one

Good enough for him

He never does

Dream of happiness

Forever trapped

In darkened days

They say the old adage

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”

Is tried and true

So how come it feels

As though you are slipping away

You rarely spend time with me

And when you do you’re so distant

Is life just weighing you down

Or is it loss of interest in me

As you walk out the door again

Going who knows where

I wonder more if this is true

“Absence – that common cure of love”

First quote by Thomas Haynes Bayly

Second quote by Lord Byron


There is a mystery,

A dilemma of the heart.

I never got over him

And he came back into my life.

But I am with another

And things are not great.

What if I were to take a chance?

Would the possible heartache

Be worth the euphoric rush

I feel when I’m with him?

But the last thing I want to do

Is hurt the one I’m with.

It feels like my heart

Is ripped in two pieces,

But who can make it whole again?

Will I ever solve this mystery?

Don’t rush me

I usually drag my feet

Especially when it’s something

I am not sure about

I wish someone would tell me

Which direction I should go

But I am torn in two

Over this decision

Should I stay

Or should I go

I guess I will continue

To procrastinate this dilemma

Because I do love you

But fear it is not enough

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – October 18

I realize this is Saturday… just pretend with me for a moment that I am not a day behind.  I blame it on my birthday this week… not that we did a lot for it but I did see two doctors that day and went out to dinner with my boyfriend.  Friday was all about resting and being wiped out after the fact.

So let’s take a look at 2016 for this FFF, the post was originally posted here.


Forgotten Dreams

This urgent need is back again

I want to reach out and touch you

Taste you

See you in loves light


But needs and wants

Don’t close the distance

That has grown

Between us


I have to learn to give up

On the dreams of us

You don’t want me

And I must move on

Taking A Trip

His eyes were so blue

And his smile so bright

He stood across the room

And I was unsure

If I should say hello

We were only acquaintances

But he always made me smile

Slowly I approached him

And said a quiet hello

He was instantly smiling

We talked for hours

And I felt my heart

Travel to cloud nine

Hours turned to days and weeks

And my heart fell deeper

Into the abyss of love

But his heart took a detour

And didn’t make it back around

I was drowning in desire

And he was saying goodbye

I was lost and broken

But fate wanted us

To still remain friends

Now how do I tell my heart

That the road to love

Is forever closed
