Another Place & Time

Another Place & Time

She stands by the window
gazing at the stars
that were never meant for her
she has been unloved so long
she doesn’t remember
any other way to live

She has found a taken man
a man who would repair
every barren heartbeat
a man who would seal
eternal voids with love
until she was whole again

She quietly admires him
knowing this loving man
is exactly who she needs
the stars were never meant for her
so she dreams of love
in another place and time

      1. No..it was one of those you need to take a deep breath moments…like you understand our souls (which of course, you do.)
        BTW….Infiniti, Lexus or Mercedes? I drive one of those….I’d be curious to see which one you guess.

        1. Smiling. Thank you for saying that. One of my favorite movies is Mel Gibson in “What Women Want.” I try to understand the female point of view. Now, regarding your question that is tricky. I love Infiniti or a big Nissan Armada. That would be my choice for myself. God, you are so classy I am tempted to say Mercedes.
          Survey says: Lexus

          1. Ha. I used to drive a Mercedes. When the Infiniti J30 first came out, Loser bought me one. I drove it for twenty years and it had less than 100k miles on it. It still looked almost new. I then went to a G37x and kept it for a while. The last time I went to Florida, I got a wild hair and bought a brand new Q50. I hate it.
            I do, though have my keys on a sterling silver Mercedes key chain that Loser got for me. Just can’t give that up.

                1. I’ve been told I come across as too self sufficient, so guys have never wanted to spend a dime on me. My husband and I love him dearly, thinks a bike ride or mountain climb, breakfast at Johnny Manana’s once a week is all I ever need. Sigh. He did pay off my antique bed I had on layaway when we were dating. That was sweet.

      2. This is basically me. I left once. And thought I knew what true love was then. I loved to hard and deeply and lost. I will not allow that to happen again.
        I came back..but everything is was and still Is wrong.
        So, love seems to escape my life.
        Well….at least I have a dog. πŸ™‚

        1. You are so funny and insightful. I believe all of us have met the perfect match at one time or another, but they were taken. It happened to me the other day with a lovely bunch of bananas. That’s life. Say la vie. I think that’s French.

              1. A twinflame would be the same share of oversoul (a part of consciousness) that further split before entering the Universe into two twin souls. Not everyone would have a twin soul on Earth and the purpose of finding your twin soul is actually to realise your mission on your planet. Twinflames are supposed to bear a common code that brings forth the reality of true love on various levels. You can say it is somewhat like a sophisticated game that consciousness is playing with itself through certain characters.

  2. Sometimes, the heart fails to know what the head knows. She wants the one that is already taken and the thing with forbidden fruit, is that it tastes sweeter. I hope she finds someone else soon and stop holding out for this one. It will only hurt. Meanwhile that image is hmmm! Stokes imaginations of men πŸ˜‰

  3. Beautiful but sad to be living in a time separate from the love of her life. Perhaps? It is illusion and the love she longs for already exists in herself waiting to be shared? True love comes from a position power not need. Not the kind of power that seeks control over others but power as in self-sufficiency. See what your poems do to my thoughts?

    1. Profound thoughts. I have tried to covey the message of self love in past posts. It is only when we love ourselves that we can find true love in others. People make the mistake of seeking happiness in others, instead of beginning within. You and I get deep into this, huh?

      1. Sometimes,I nearly drown myself in the deep end. lol But I still love to go deep diving. This poem invites me to delve deeper into the ‘why’ of her state. I’m also, writing about a recluse and allowing her a process to reconnect with life so…I’m kind of there already. I’m getting ready to devote some time to Estelle. Talk to you later.:0)

  4. Deeply touched by this poem. So many people feel bereft of love – all of us at some point in our lives. Henry David Thoreau wrote, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them.” Those who create love and compassion are fortunate indeed. I can see you at the other end of this poem, the one who sees worth in everyone.

    1. I am touched that you feel this way about this poem. I am humbled by your kind words. I try to see good in everyone. Don’t always succeed, but I try. That is a wonderful quote. First time hearing it. Thanks for stopping by, your visits are always special.

  5. Late to the party again! I loved reading everyone’s comments, though. You have to find a way to move on when “the right” one is taken. I read an interesting article about the fallacy of soul mates. I’ll try and find it, it was really interesting. Bottom line: we may have several soul mates, or like Geetha said: twin flames! I love that!

    1. LOL Honestly, there are nights I am bored, and I go back & read my silliness while I chat with everyone. Some of it is better than my posts. I love that whole twinflame thing. I hope you can find that article. Would make for a good post.

  6. Your poem about longing for the one who is unattainable struck a chord with several readers. It can sometimes turn into a chase which may end badly. I think we have more th Han one chance and sometimes grow apart. What once was seemingly perfect became less so. . . Nice comments and good thought provoking post, A.

  7. This happens more than most of us care to admit. You’ve tendered a piece that nails this sentiment and resonates with those of us who have been or are there now.

  8. There is nothing we can do when this happens. Heartbreaking, but the life is merciful and sends another love our way. There is abundance of love, actually. Seriously πŸ˜‰
