A Story of Love


On the merry-go-round of the Friday Fictioneers, we spin our stories, tell our tales;  climb to the heights or sink to the depths of the human condition. The photo to challenge us this week, comes courtesy of David Stewart, you can climb his Green Walled Tower to read more from him, and you can read more from Rochelle, who leads the Fictioneers up and down and round and round each week.

A Story of Love

I believed your promises of love and forever

I left my friends and family behind

They didn’t see what I saw

Couldn’t bask in the glow of the love you gave me.

I walked beside you

Your confidence soared

You matured

Saw a different world

A world of opportunity

 Endless possibilities

For an unencumbered man.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

 Heartbroken desolate abandoned

Unable to dull the pain

I returned to my safe haven

Loving arms held me tight

Unquestioning support and solace

Nurtured the Me you had destroyed

Watched the smile I’d lost return

Saw me climb back to my place in the sun.

      Thank you Jan. The photo reminded me of a fairground and of a series of events that changed my life. Part of it came out in the poem and I’m pleased that you liked it.
      Take care

  1. It’s that last line that does it for me, darling. It seems such a melancholy poem, but that last line hints at triumph.

      Yes, that’s just what happened.
      Love certainly makes you blind at times, even when your upbringing and common sense scream ‘Stop!’ you plough on regardless.
      Thanks for reading
