Silence and Tears ...


In the chilling coldness of reality
When all hope of love has gone
How do I go on without you?
Oh how I miss you so ...

As the shadows of night enfold me
Alone with my thoughts once more
The feelings of loss torment me
And arouse all of my fears ...

Why did you have to leave me?
Now all nights will end in tears
No more precious moments
Someone else will share your dreams ...

It is too painful to imagine
I don't know where you are
You have left me here in silence
Alone with just my tears ...

My heart falls by the wayside
Along with my broken dreams
No hope of a tomorrow now
Not with you it would seem ...

In a cold and sobering silence
It takes its bitter blow
I really have nothing left
Even hope has deserted me now ...

Antonio Machado said...

Hello Dianne,
I loved the design - simple and accurate!
The poetic text speaks of silence, dreams ...
Very good!
I wish you a great Sunday!

I've learned to not share my dreams because "apparently" others find them "disturbing". I once shared then with the author Stephen King, and he was so freaked out, that he couldn't write for hours.

Leovi said...

Nice words to sad feelings, when hope is lost we feel invaded by fear. It is essential to be aware of our feelings to overcome them.
Besos.

dianne said...

Thank you for stopping by Pugsly my sweet. Gosh your dreams must be frightening if you freaked out Stephen King; you poor little thing, I don't like to think that you have nightmares. I have lovely dreams, I just wish I had a really nice man to share mine with.

foam said...

Very sad and very beautiful. I'm sort of hoping you are not feeling all this melancholia yourself.

dianne said...

Thank you dear Leovi for your thoughtful words, yes it is important to externalise our sad feelings, even in a poem, it helps.
Besos

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy for your thoughtful words. No, I am not feeling sad now, just reflecting on and dealing with some feelings of sadness from recent times. I am perfectly OK now, so please don't worry about me little 'sweet pea'.

Shweta Tiwari said...

Dianne,
Really a beautiful poem. How are you? I have been very busy with work.

Now a days perhaps I'm also going through this phase. I cant stop thinking about the past. and I wonder if soul mates exist why don't they meet and live together and why do they have to live a scattered life!

But I guess there is more to life than living in the past. The fun must be in looking for that!

Take care
Shweta

Leovi said...

Yes, no doubt that after such deep feelings end up coming back hope.
Besos.

Muriel said...

I send you a big kiss Dianne, your words are sweet and sad, I like the way you write.
Life is amazing and each day is different.
I think we choose our life every day and there is no time for sadness and regret.
Sorry for my bad english ;)
<3 <3 <3

dianne said...

Hello Shweta dear, is is so nice to see you here. Thank you, I am pleased that you enjoyed my poem.
Yes life would be much happier and simpler if we actually met a soul mate, someone we could identify with on so many levels, someone who cared, who just loved us and cherished us for whom we are...I have not found that yet and I am running out of time and hope.
I know so many people who are happy and complete with each other...why not me?
I have so much to give, yet true love eludes me.
Don't give up hope dear Shweta and don't live in the past, you are young and have so much to look forward to. Yes, the fun is in the looking and you will be pleasantly surprised one day.
Take care
love and hugs

Yes life is amazing and every day is different, I would once look forward to each day with hope in my heart. This has just been a sad time and there is much regret but I can still see so much beauty in the world and I wish that each day will bring new happiness.
Your english is perfect, much better than my french. :)
Bisous

Olga said...

Perhaps I have already mentioned that, when I read your poems, in my mind, I can picture music, and I feel that they can easily be turned into a song.

Mediterráneo said...

Hola, bella!

Cuanto duele el amor a veces, y cuántas lágrimas nos arranca.

Me encanto tu poema y tu dibujo a lápiz, precioso!

Besos!

dianne said...

Thank you Olga dear, that is a lovely thing to say, sometimes I think of them as a song but most would be very sad ... a few of my followers have said the same thing.

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Hola, preciosa Mediterráneo,
Gracias por tu comentario preciosa, sí que me muchas lágrimas, pero que pasará con el tiempo. Me alegra que haya disfrutado de mi poema y dibujo a lápiz.
Besos!

Leovi said...

Yes, there are terrible nights, but the morning light brings new hope. Besos.

JUAN FUENTES said...

Amiga Dianne.Cuántas personas habran pasado por esa centenária puerta,
cuámtas história nos podria contar,
pero la madera és inerte,y no tiene sentimientos.
Un fuerte abrazo

MA FERREIRA said...

Lindo poema apesar de triste.
Lindo o desenho ..

Parabéns pela sua arte!

dianne said...

Thank you dear Leovi for your lovely comment. As day breaks I wait to see if the morning light brings new hope but, no.
There is one consolation, I still have some very happy memories and nothing can take them away.
Besos
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Juan mi amigo, es una puerta muy vieja, me pregunto si es inerte, me pregunto si tiene recuerdos de la época y las personas que han pasado por ella, todos han dejado su huella.
Un fuerte abrazo
xoxoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Caro MA FERREIRA, sim, um poema triste, mas muito obrigado por suas amáveis ​​palavras e estou contente que tenha gostado do art.

Craftsman of light said...

Dianne,
You know as much as i do that sketching is words extending through lines, in the manner you display to to compliment your text, i can see her loosen hair, her body bend with sorrow,she cannot lift her head,the weight of emptiness can be sometimes much heavier than it might seem.
What is interesting is to translate feelings into creativity!

i've been particularly touched by the sensitive contents of this post.
thankyou!

much much love!

dianne said...

col dear friend, thank you for your lovely words. Yes my sketch displays the feelings of the poem so well, you can feel the sorrow, the emptiness which is felt so deeply, the resignation of being left to try and go on alone.
I am grateful that you have been touched by the sensitivity of this post.
Much love to you too dear friend!
