He said, “I love you “,
Touching her palm gently
Eyes sparkled and shined
Like a Diamonds on the sky
In the shadow of a smiley full Moon
With it’s round face like a balloon.

Passion, love, romance, candles
a glass of a red wine –
Great music for the evening
two people wrapped
in a blanket of love-
When being together,
The World did not matter at all.

She told him, “I love you “,
you are the man of my dreams.
I have been waiting for you
At the Youth Fountain…
A secret meeting place, for those two.

He loved her dearly each day.
However, life events kept them apart.
She cried often to her pillow
missing the man
who was dearest to her heart.

Dreams, promises failed.
The hopes she had disappeared.
Life was empty with out him
her heart was broken and bled.

Her days were sad and gloomy
as a sky with heavy clouds
Darkness covered her soul,
Tears misted her eyes-
Only memory she treasured
forever lived in her broken heart.

  1. This is a very up close and personal look into a broken heart. I feel like I’ve been let into the life and death of this relationship. The most potent lines, for me, are the last two. Very moving. Good work.


  2. Well I do enjoy this audio addition!
    Wonderful to read AND listen to the poet reading their own work!

    Thank you for posting. This was great. My wife says to say how much she liked it.
