Did You Ever Love Me…

within the heart written
always left unseen 
no one dares read the pain
when they have nothing to gain

love been shared
but won’t be remembered
promises uttered
lies on sweet lips gathered

did you ever love me
or just the want of me
my eyes were blinded to see
did only set my spirit free

so i go on loving
and keep on believing
that life is for the living
for all, that’s worth giving

    It’s true, rarely do people feel the pain that you go through. And love for many is just an exchange of few romantic moments that they crave for. But, any relation that is based on giving and sharing lasts forever. I loved your poem because, it ponders upon these practicalities of life. Well written Suzette portes san jose
