Two people often forget even if they love each other there are problems and issues. If they are strong enough love will survive if not it withers and dies.


There in the soft radiant candle's fire,
we felt the stir of sweet desire.
Two souls whose hearts had come together,
two lives no power could dare to sever.

Like moths to the flame,
it always ends the same.
A heart is broken,
a word unspoken,
and yet we still play the game.

A gentle stirring of her heart,
the time they had to spend apart.
She thought she read more in his eyes,
but the heart betrays and oft times lies.

Like leaves cast to the wind,
we accept too quickly then rescind.
Dreams are lost,
both souls pay the cost,
and we are left to attack and defend.

Farewell sweet gentle interlude,
I shall not return or try to intrude.
For love it comes and steals the soul,
it cuts the heart and takes its toll.

Like children trying to place the blame,
love always seems to end the same.
Too quick to fall,
we want it all,
and yet we still play the game.

Hi my lovely talented wife. What is wrong with that crazy Mig person anyway. She got the hots for you. Tell her you don't swing that way.
Love this write. Nice job.

Susan, you did it again! I loved this piece... It's so rhythmic and seductive. When I was reading I imagine a couple playing actually love games in each others, trying not to giving in to the will to hand over and say what they really feel to each other.

It's another amazing piece and I couldn't expect less from you, my dear friend. Keep it up the good work and tell me when you post new stuff.

Felipe :]

You read the piece well Felipe. I appreciate you reading and saying the nice things you do. You are a true friend.

I read this poem a couple of times and it is one that I
would ask the author to explain lines and thoughts to me (I am not the sharpest tool in the shed) This flows beautifully as I read it and the rhyme is great. BRian
PS. {hugs} I hope things are going good for you

Okay Brian. The poem was a general poem about how people that love each other play silly games. This one gets their feelings hurt and does something stupid and so on. They let the world and others interfer with the love they have for each other. Sometimes people get lucky and find it out early enough to save their marriage, others are not so fortunate.
Does that help? I wrote it because several people that I knew were going through this turmoil in their relationships.
I do thank you for reading and the comments. I guess I am okay. Just tired. Thanks for the hugs. Susan :)

Truth be told I only came to see who would give one of the nicest people EVER on booksie trouble. So I figured I might as well read the poem. Great job

Thanks Abena. He is gone now. I thank God for that too. I was going to close up shop and leave. I appreciate you very much.

Some guy on youtube tried to have me banned because all over his profile was post this on your profile if you would stick up for Satan. If I knew him I would probably throw a Bible at him.

So anyway I asked if he was a Satanist and he said he was reporting me because apparently I was "persecuting him". But he said he wasn't a Satanist and that he was satanic. This happened a week ago and I'm still on youtube.

Just go to show the people on God's side always win

You are so right. His wife kept leaving comments like he and I were messing around. Ha that's a laugh. Then he asked me to remove his and her comments I did that and then his wife he said wasn't his wife started a second round. He asked me to remove the comment where he called me the ugly word and I didn't. I wanted people to know what was going on. Good for you for standing up for yourself and God. He will bless you for it. Thanks you are a dear friend. :)

Hey, you did it again! You know what, a writer represents the world to us, as it is without fear. And that is what you have done. Love, love, love is something of a game two players can play and it is falling in love with an adult (do teenagers fall in love or is it infatuation?) who grew up apart believing in different things is the most tiring thing. You also have to give and get, but give mostly.

That is what the game is all about. Well I didn't intend to give an opinion but that is what I think this poem is all about, giving and getting, but mostly giving.

I loved it.

Thanks James, I appreciate it and yes you are 100% right. Susan :)
