From the Book:
“Shadows of Love: Inside the H’Art of a Poet”
I ran across this poem in my poetry book and wanted to share. Tonight, it made me think about someone very special. I loved this man so very much and all I ever wanted, was for him to find my glass shoe and come for me.
He never did, but you know what? I still love him. Inspite of...
okay, okay enough of my wishing, let me move on. Here's the poem:
When you fall in love with a man who has a divided heart,
your relationship is doomed right from the start.
As he tries to convince you that things are better than they seem,
he leads you down a path of empty promises and unfulfilled dreams.
Hot and steamy lovemaking filled with passionate cries are followed by
unanswered calls, disappearing acts and insulting lies.
His smooth and crafty words resonate in your head, as you lie awake at
night in a cold and empty bed.
Being shuffled about like a deck of cards and feeling like a fool, is the price you
pay for being in love with a man who’s totally confused.
You deserve to be loved by a God-fearing man who is stable and sincere, not a man
who has become an expert at saying things every woman wants to hear.
Get out of this mess, Girlfriend! God has better plans for you.
He wants to rebuild your inner spirit and make it better than new.
You are a precious Child of God. You are beautiful and way too smart,
to stay in a damaging relationship with a man who has a divided heart.
p.s., I'm dedicating this poem to:
"The Man with the Divided Heart and the Woman that he would not let love him".
peace & blessings.
