Chance And Change - Poem by Esther Leclerc

For one ruined in love, the old status quo
Offers comfort of a kind tho' cold.
Suffering neglect, your heart is a wreck,
Yet one's vow demands payment of debt.

Honorbound to see old promises through,
Despite the cost and the loss, you do.
For years it's been wrong, and forever's so long,
Wanting to be held, to be known, to belong.

Chances to let go, to be free and to know
How good it feels as love flowers and grows
Have come and gone just as dusk chases dawn,
Like pretty dreams light a world dark and wan.

Change is a Chance taken - - not another need
Forsaken to spare one whose tight heart will bleed.
Don't fear that long leap o'er the abyss of trust,
Just close your eyes... life without love is but dust.

    Your accomplished writing belies the impression created by your biographical information that you cannot write poetry - a very wise observation beautifully presented! Kind regards, Margaret. (Report) Reply

    I could hedge around this one all day, because knowing what the heart wants is a truly tricky business. Sometimes you have to cross the threshold to discover it, and often the result is a shocking surprise. But for those who know where their heart lies, or who are enduring this kind of situation, this very finely crafted poem offers the soundest advice. xx jim (Report) Reply
