On The Outside Looking In

It's a cold and lonely place
on the outside looking in
There's a chill in my heart
as I look for you there
Trying to find a reflection
of how we used to be
I'm excluded and rejected
such a desolate place to be
How sad that you forget
all that we once shared
How long I would wait
in silence for you here
I had no expectations
it was just that I cared
I was always about 'feelings'
always about 'heart'
We had a long history
I was with you from the start
I gave you consolation
the warmth of my heart
Always there to listen
when you needed a friend
But you wrote the last words
on the page that said 'Goodbye'
Closed the book on me
and sent me away.
And showed me little understanding
in the end ...

A great poem with deep feelings of love, full of tenderness.
Besos.

dianne said...

Uh oh is right dear Foamy .
You know I am such a fool, I only have myself to blame. When I care about someone I put too much of myself into that friendship, so much faith in them and I think they will feel the same. They rarely do and obviously he did not.
I am not bitter and I am not saying I am a victim, however I was more than a little hurt by the way I was so coldly and easily dismissed after such a long aquaintance and what I believed to be a special friendship...
I have feelings of sadness and disappointment.
He has a new circle of friends now to charm and dazzle, I am not wanted any more, if I ever was. :(

Amigo Juan , no me extraña que se ve tan triste si ella está en un hogar de ancianos, tan trágico cuando terminar nuestras vidas con demencia.

Hurt, anger and disaapointment. If that is what they give you, you are better off without them.

Art said...

I have no words, but this appeals to me, you are so good with words and emotions!

Elia said...

Dear Dianne
always sad when a friendship ends
but you will smile again with other new friends, life insurance gives you new,
and will cheer your heart, you bring new illusions,
do not look back, always go, life goes by giving you things.
I'm sure !!

As always, a beautiful poem,
full of melancholy.

happy week for you ;))
a big hug

^^

Thank you dear Art , you said more than you realise and I appreciate that; these emotions are very real to me at the moment.

Yes very frustrating dear Leovi , I cannot understand why my banishment has been so harsh and final. I did not realise that caring for someone was such a crime.

Juan , mi poema es triste, estoy triste y confundido, no entiendo por qué me ha abandonado y desestimó de manera tan abrupta y completamente. Yo no haría eso a él. Me mostró poca comprensión y lealtad al final.
