Where Love Takes Us . . .


I feel I have nothing to offer
nothing left any more
I am tired
I am weary
Scratch the surface
of this happy facade

this mask that I wear
and there you will
find nothing

but lost hopes

and emptiness

I cannot explain
how
I reached this place
This is not what I had hoped for

not what I had wished

but here I am
just the same
chasing shadows and dreams

which disappear

get so close
but
always
just out of reach

I wanted to go

where love takes us

that happy state

where we blossom and grow
that feeling of belonging

where all we perceive
has a rosey glow

but I wonder now
if I shall ever know. . .

I feel exactly the same way, everytime I have to visit the Department of Motor Vehicles to renew my Driver's License.

this IS where love takes us!

Opaque said...

Hmm... you will know... just wait...

J Cosmo Newbery said...

Sometimes we look too hard. And in the wrong places.

dianne said...

Oh Pugsley my sweet, I'm sorry to hear you feel this way when you visit the DMV.
Surely they would make some compenstaions for someone who is so cute! :) xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Yes dear /t.
I have had glimpses of where love can take us and I would like more with the right person.
Yes there is plenty of love here from you and my friends who always make me smile ... I have never found anything resembling love at the DMV, though there was a charming man talking to me when I renewed my drivers license in September. :)
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear Opaque yes I'm sure I will know ... though I seem to have been waiting for such a long time, but I guess I shall have to wait some more, perhaps someone will come along one day.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear J Cosmo ,
though I haven't been looking too hard as there aren't many places where I would seek someone to be with ... but obviously where I have been looking is not the right place to find what I am searching for.

a suitor with a curly tail
is a pugalicious holy grail
the artist comes in his disguise
of pictures big he can apprise
and sweet opaque i cant see through
the waiting's end is overdue
j cosmo knows how not to look
(and poets should, they wrote the book)
and what of the rottie? what say he
love lives in your poetry

foam said...

here dianne ..
have a beer or two or three or 10 with me ..
it's okay ..
it's all cyber beer and any flavor you want it
to be and as non alcoholic as you desire it to be ...

HLiza said...

Can I join you and Foam? Love to give you some hugs..we all need it..without you even realising it, love will come Dianne..

dianne said...

Thank you dearest K9
that is a sweet poem.
Yes what the Rottie says is true, love lives on in my poetry and the waiting's end is overdue.
I have many friends here to be thankful for and I do appreciate all of you. xoxoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy , yes I will have a refreshing cold drink with you, or two, or three, it will do me good as I definitely need to lighten up a lot!

Cheers!

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Of course you can join us dearest HLiza , you are always welcome here. You, Foamy, K9 and myself and anyone else, we shall have a cyber party.
Thank you dear I could certainly do with some hugs ... it would be nice if love came to me one day.
xoxoxo ♡

Lee said...

Who knows where love takes us? Or when?

dianne said...

True, dear Lee thank you, that is a nice thing to say, but I would like to find out, I have been waiting for such a long time and I would like a little personal happiness.
xoxoxo ♡

It's time for someone to "dance in the rain."

Cheers,

dianne said...

Thank you dear Painter , I have been dancing in the rain but I am getting awfully wet, I need a nice man with an umbrella to rescue me. :-) xoxoxo ♡

Hi Dianne,

Its been quite sometime i've been away from blogging.

Soon hope to have my holidays.

Anway, Dianne, i read your poem and hope something magical will transform your sadness into joy....
Everything we face in life is about the step we take towards ourselves.
meanwhile i send you a lot of love, and big hugs!

dianne said...

Thank you lovely col , for your wishes and kindness.
I shall probably write some more poems expressing how I feel, yes I may falter every so often and slip back into sadness but I am trying so much not to. Please do not worry yourself about me I am not expecting anything magical to happen any time soon or at all. I feel I have reached a state of acceptance which is not so bad as I have no expectations.
I hope that you are travelling to some great destination for your holiday!
Love and big hugs to you too my friend.
xoxoxo ♡

Leovi said...

A beautiful poem of heartbreak, hope it's not your case. Greetings.

dianne said...

Thank you Leovi , yes the poem is about me, just reflecting on my feelings but I shall be alright, for some of us love is just out of reach.

Saludos xoxoxo ♡
