#2 - Poem by Karina Castle

2/11/2008

Remember when he loved me
I was his world
Wanted to be with me always
We danced and we twirled

Used to be his #1
Now I'm second best
Everything comes before me
I feel like his foot rest

I don't know what has happened
I want to be his queen
Don't want this suicidal feeling
I need some morphine

I'll just have to deal with it
Try to keep my mouth shut
I love him so much
But right now I want to cut

    So many different forms of love - and such depth portrayed here... Aging we find better ways to cope with all the cracks and fissures in love - because it is something we do all of our lives.... Cutting oneself is never the answer - because the real guy - the one you meet later - the one who loves you - and who is right now looking for you - deserves the whole you - unfettered - unmarred - Look at your poetry! How wonderful this is! You have so much more value than what this subject of your poem offers back to you.... I hope you meant just 'cut' him out of your life... (Report) Reply

    Well said, John. I had the very same thoughts, except I thought by 'cut' she may have meant to scram, as in 'cut and run'.

    Through these exasperating words a whole world of anguish flows from a dreamy past of a beautiful soul in love but lamenting the lover's switch over. The poem will be remembered for its immaculate beauty. Thanks. A quote:
