unfulfilled love - unrequited love - love relinquished - life unlived...

we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real - come along with me - we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories of love around the campfire - come along -

poetry from the heart...


POETRY FROM THE HEART - my own words dedicated to all the words left unspoken, the acts left undone - the love unlived unfulfilled -

i dance with you...only in dreams...

tweet me, but tweet me gently, please!

melanie - thank you so much for coming by and leaving such a kind comment - just left your place of beautiful words!! ;)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

ah, yes, and i did, kay - i did take - but 'twas not mine to have and so i relinquished because i love him more than i had to have him - and i had/have to have him more than my own breath - does that make sense?

So concise, the question that lingers on the lovers lips…

GYPSYWOMAN said...

yes, the question that surely lingers still, steppenwolf -

Roger Gauthier said...

The answer is so simple though, harden your heart and build your eight fences... You probably won't be happy but... But this heart-wrenching feeling will stop tearing at your after a time.

Harden your heart till you feel you don't have one anymore. Why suffer?

If you still want the torment that goes with the passion of love, then nothing can be done, one day it will be your death.

Love is always, has always been a sad-ending story.

The Photographer Who Is Not

GYPSYWOMAN said...

my dear photographer who IS - ah, but your words do sadden me so at times, sir! and i confess, yes, i must, must have the passion and the love - the passionate love - the all-consuming love - my spirit requires it - it cannot be helped nor do i wish it to be different - and of the hardened heart, never! it will never be so hardened as to not begin again, nor do i believe your protestations to be as strong as you might suggest, dear friend! ;)

thank you so much for coming by roger - and for always leaving such thoughtful little snippits!
