The Separation


Cold, heat but no warmth
Break my heart a thousand ways
Cut, sever, do it

What is this torment?
Can I hazard sense in this?
My tears autumn leaves?

Where is the safety?
Endangered by mistrust
Was there ever love?

  1. Unfortunately not, if there is no sense of warmth through heat. I love tears that fall as leaves. You hold strength here even when asking such a exhausting question and you have been very clever with the words this week. :)

  2. Lots of unanswered questions posed so eloquently.

  3. Sometimes the coldness is to keep the other person from asking too many painful questions. The end is always hard, no matter which side you're on.

  4. No one should stay in a no-love, no respect, distrustful relationship.....Sometimes we think we have no choice, we love too much, but we need to love ourselves more.

  5. I enjoyed your poem. My favourite line "Endangered by mistrust" Why do we do that do you think - endanger our love with mistrust?

  9. Mature tears. To trust in love, who is trusted more? Your self or their self? Mature tears also know loving one you can't trust. No matter which self.

    Very thought provoking.
    Thank you.

  11. A beautiful sad but strong poem. Autumn the stage of your relationship as well as the falling tear leaves. Be strong :)

  12. "Heat but no warmth" was the crux of this for me. So sad, that loss of love. Distrust has no place in true love, so maybe it's for the best. You deserve love and so much more, for all the beauty you give us. Peace, Amy
