Gone now forever

We once loved so madly

But now we miss each other sadly,

Our passionate fire burnt so hot

Yet it burned for such a short time,

Intense though it may have been

We could never hope to keep it going,

And when it all just fell apart

There was so much deep acrimony,

There were tears and there was anger

There was so much bitterness and spite,

But now the dust has settled

I think we both must question why,

Two people who were so in lov

Can end up hurting each other this way,

And is it not kind of strange

Knowing we could never love that way again,

It’s sad but this is also true

There’s a permanent barrier between me and you,

And love will never come to our rescue,

It’s forever over and there’s nothing more that is the ultimate and clear truth now.

  1. Apologies for the perhaps over-quick comment before… by lovely, I meant I was loving the rhymes and rhythm and fluidity of expression in this one, as I genuinely admire in all your poetry… but the thoughts are sad indeed. The poem’s question is a good one… and maybe it’s that it wasn’t love but some other feeling, that was hurting. Love doesn’t hurt… That one line, “permanent barrier” is perhaps the saddest of all… it’s difficult to work through our own barriers, but I don’t believe they are permanent, or that much is, really, other than true love itself, maybe, which goes with the flow, dissolving barriers… passing through different people at different times. Sending lots of love to you, and thanks for sharing your poetry, and your kind and loving support around WP 🙏💛💛

A little philosophical, a bit anthropological, perhaps sociological? But for sure... hell-lot-of poetry!

Bare Bones Blog of Philosophy

This blog is intended to be wiry. It’s only about philosophy. There will be no gimmicks. I will write as if from a monastery: contemplation is the task; the fluster and bluster of the world is silenced. Yet the blog is also a workspace of critical inquiry and exploration. I don't claim to have solved any philosophical problems.
