The Warmth of Love

We place our hopes and dreams
Of long lasting happiness
In words of kindness and warmth
Of a love unspoken, yet implied
But never to blossom further
Just destined to fail
Unlike the promise of new buds
In the soft glow of morning light
Their petals opening slowly
To reveal their hidden beauty
Our hearts come to life
Just like the flowers
A feeling long lost, but familiar
That perhaps once again
Our hearts too will blossom
And feel the warmth of love once more ...

The Emptiness of Silence

I am still haunted by what once was
Reaching out only to find emptiness
The constant silence ever present
Moves in like hollow shadows
An empty silence within me
Longing to be filled
My thoughts…
Where once was hope…now quiet resignation
and defeat.
No clichés uttered of gaining strength
From the experiences of failure
And of loss
Of forgetting and moving on
I am not hiding behind my sadness
I live that sadness
I still cannot find the words
To express my feelings with depth
And if I could
What difference would they make?
It would be an exercise in futility
All has changed now
You stopped listening
Nothing will ever be the same
The happiness I felt, though transient
Has been taken from me…

Thank You!

Thank you, to you my dear friends who have left your kind, thoughtful and encouraging messages at my previous post. I appreciate you taking the time to think of me, it means so much to me at present. I have been visiting your lovely blogs and leaving comments to let you know I am thinking of you. 
I don't really know how to describe how I am feeling, perhaps I am in "stall mode", afraid to take the next step, afraid of failure, though personally I have moved forward. 
I feel disheartened and disappointed with myself for my lack of inspiration to write another poem to post for you here. Once the words flowed so easily, hopefully in time they will again.
I found a lovely quote on my dear friend Susan Black's blog last evening, it made me feel more hopeful.
Please take care everyone, love and hugs Dianne!  xoxoxo  ♥
