Aspiring Poetry

Here's a poem I wrote tonight. Based on feelings that were pumping through my body. I'm not sure how well they come across in this creation but I just wrote what my heart told me to..

The Other Side of Love

It takes years to tear down walls of fear
Countless assuring moments
To stack the bricks of trust
Step by step we climb the vines
Victoriously arriving atop.

Vulnerable and unguarded lies my heart
Helpless against the winds of fate
The slightest breeze of doubt
Knocks me off the wall
Left to make the treacherous climb once again.

I fell off the wrong side
Onto the hard cold ground
I climb as fast as I can
Wanting the warmness and comfort
Instead feeling aching and hurt.

Truth dawns as the top again is reached
There is no wrong side of the wall
While one is more desired
Both are necessary, both are good
Both are love.

Very Nice.

What I see here is written quite well; moreso was I looking at the meaning than the writing technique...

I understand the sentiments you express through it; it's conveyed well that way. It is actually eerily similar to some of the thoughts in my head lately.

But again, well done.

Also you have 5 karma, and we cannot have that - it is terribly unlucky
Allow me to fix that

Thanks to both of you- it's very encouraging.
And Chess- people were just so blown away by yours that they were speechless. That's why mine has a "better reception".

What she says rings true

Chess, honestly, I am still at a loss for words in regards to your work... it was also really well done. When I logged on to read yours again, Princess' were up, and I got distracted... sorry

Well done! Bravo!

Another heartwrencher from one of our beloved Innmates... I can hardly stand it.

Beautiful work, Princess... Like Chess's recent postings, this one kind of grabbed hold of my heart and squeezed it a bit... I love it when a poem does that. +1

That said, having read all of these poems regarding the pain of loving and/or being loved, here's hoping that, at some point, all of you heartbroken heroes find a love somewhere that is lifting as opposed to lamentable, yes?

If nothing else, Eol loves you all!
