by browneyesblue

Each day on pleading and bent knees
He would profess to her his love
He promised to give her all the things
All her life she felt unworthy of

She didn’t understand her luck
Why this man could love her so much
She believed the softness in his eyes
And the sincerity in his touch

She grew up in a troubled home
Never knew a man she could trust
Her current marriage was built on lies
And truths were never to be discussed

She had two beautiful young sons
That she loved more than anything
She didn’t want to upset their lives
And all the troubles divorce would bring

But this man, she couldn’t ignore
How he filled her heart so complete
Wanting to raise her boys without lies
Her mother’s mistakes not to repeat

She mustered up all her courage
Told her husband she wanted out
Then placed her weary heart in his hands
And gave it to him without a doubt

She told him she finally did it
She wanted to be his for keeps
But he only drew back in his seat
In his adversity he sank deep

She finally broke the silence
“What is it you’re thinking?” She asked
“I don’t know what to tell you!” He said
And she noticed his answer was fast

Shattered is the only true word
To describe how she truly felt
Handed him her heart on a platter
And this was the fate she was dealt

A piece of her went dead that day
Quietly laid her heart to rest
His equivocation evident
Her worth, in her eyes, now is confessed

Dang. If yer avatar is you, a beautiful blonde, eyes of blue,
'n' that smile always blesses yer face, then I'm in love with you.
Now I got a lady of thirty years, she don't allow no girl friend.
So I gotta say yer beautiful with a brother's love in the end.

Beautifully written, candid, sad 'n' that guy's crazy. Seein' yer soul in yer words 'n' yer avatar, won't be long uncrazy comes along

You have made me blue once again with your words, I guess that I should thank you for that, it proves I still have a heart. You are a true and honest writer... and I admire your courage.

    I can only write from my heart and from my own experiences; otherwise, the feelings never really burn through. Courage? I think that word, along with strength, are honorable; however I think they are precursers to one becoming cold. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. But I have learned that what doesn't kill you, makes you all the more unvulnerable. Not always a good thing. Thanks so much for your kind words!

What a cruel irony life can be. So much that hurts us is so seldom seen as is in what you write brown eyes. In this life God gives us one, just one, and sadly it usually isnt the one seen in youthful exuberance or even the handsome thing seen in midlife after a fling.... Just one that cares and loves because they know it is the one.....,I feel your hurt because I once tasted it... No hurt ever will hurt worse or haunt you more knowing you tasted that which was yours... Beautiful poetry, I weep for you my friend. Crying or Very sad

    I don't deserve your tears, Gil. Thank you for your kind words, when instead you could have said "Karma's a bitch". I hope you are well.

      It is what it is Tara.. You write super well girl.. and its not Karma darlin, its just life. I lost everything as money wise, my truck, my Mustang Cobra, my home, much of my possessions. I walked off with my Harley and two pups.. But I have rebuilt. In losingy possessions I gained my freedom. It took me a while to understand but I am happier for it. It hurt like hell but truly made me stronger. I hope you are well and your two boys.. Chin up Tara Wink it gets better darlin...
