Deserving lovers

She wished to be together
given any chance,
and yet
there she was,
he was some place else;
she wished to hold him forever
entice him with words
or actions
whatever that might work,
yet he was somplace else;
she understood today
she could have followed him
and yet
here she is
savoring the love of one,
who deserves her,here and now.

Prompted @ 3WW


  1. An interesting poem. How does one deserve a lover?

    1. by loving without boundaries and expectations too maybe ;)

    1. true !
      the one , here and now , is a different guy :)

  3. I know that feeling..when you pin what you need on one've conveyed it well.. Perhaps we change a little the intensity dilutes but that person does seem to remain..Jae

  4. This is not a simple story about thwarted love--there's a deeper story behind this one. Sometimes there is a reason why things don't work out, and having someone to love "here and now" is worth far more than a distant love, I think. Nicely done.

    1. you got it perfectly !
      I hope more people understand this on time :)
      but then, what can one say about lovers ;)

  5. Unrequitted love... so sad until acceptance comes.

  6. it doesn't hurt to ponder what-if, especially when it helps to solidify the choice made.

    a really nice piece.


Any thought ? Anything ...
