Shadowed Love

Filed in Lack of Communication Poetry, Love Poetry by on April 27, 2009 0 Comments • views: 1477

I have done my best not to love you
I have tried so hard to make it die
and now my plot it works
but when will I know why

I see your pain,
I feel your tears,
Yet no pain or tears you reveal,
For you have closed your doors to all this strife
so the agony won’t seem real

I love you. It’s true.
Yet, for me, when I love,
it’s easy to say,
the words will flow,
and you feel me in this way

For you, emotion words are not natural
For you, being quiet is fair,
although you love me, you just don’t speak
then I believe you simply don’t care

To save our love from the trap fallen into,
so many times and more,
please see my side and I’ll see yours,
and in doing so
we can meet at love’s door

By Barbara Tremblay Cipak

Shadowed Love: I wrote this poem years ago (many years ago), in my late teens (ions ago!). The poem refers to people who love each other but are unable to effectively communicate and express their love to each other, because they are simply on different wave lengths; one is expressive, the other isn’t. It’s a common tale, and often couples just won’t work it out, so they break up – only to discover that breaking up doesn’t work either. Perhaps the answer is to meet each other half way.
