I write what I feel…

When Love Leaves


When Love Leaves

Colour faded from my world,
But I was blind,
Too caught up in life
To see the signs.

Taxi mom, fetch and carry
To and fro – way to go.
Romance had left long before
Love went out the door.

You held my love captive
In your heart;
It fought to break free
And returned to me.

When trust is broken
The bond is gone;
Nothing can cement the cracks,
There’s no going back.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. It can happen so easily 😦


  2. it does…i have seen a few families that healed afterwards but for the most part, no…i think you nailed it with the line about romance leaving long before love…romance is so huge…not just sex, but intimacy, putting ht eother before you…


  3. Yes, I agree with you. I think one of the parties had already distanced himself – in his head – and may not even have been aware of it.


  4. sad but so true for many


  5. your words have a lovely flow to match the image,
    wisely done,

    hard to be romantic all the time,
    love, tolerance, and responsibility are factors in the end to keep a family….

    u write a wide range of topics, so cool to read u.


  6. And it can happen so quickly 😦


  7. …sometimes we see, but choose not to…..I did something in Afrikaans today….I`ll try a translation and post it tomorrow or the day after…


    • That’s also true…!
      ———— ****** ======
      Why don’t you post an English translation underneath the Afrikaans on the same blog. Some things get lost in translation and quite a few of us understand the ‘taal’. Take care.


  8. Tragically true. One cannot repair a shattered piece of priceless porcelain.
