Once Upon Another Life

Posted: 30th June 2009 by Timothy A. Rhoades in Love Poems

Feeling the warmth,
Of you hand in mine.
The gaining of closeness,
From trials left behind. 

That look in your eye,
That took me so far away.
That piece of my heart lost,
When you said “I can’t stay”. 

A happiness remembered,
From a time spent with you…
Once upon another life,
Before my world was so blue. 

Softly whispered heart breaks,
Still echoing through my mind.
So many memories in hindsight,
That should have been a sign. 

But my heart is now torn,
Between the present and a golden field…
From once upon another life,
 Where together our love we sealed. 

With all the heavens watching,
We took that lovers leap.
To a place we couldn’t understand,
To feeling that was too deep. 

I held on too long,
Even though I knew you let go.
Hoping to prove it all wrong…
Staying stagnant in life’s flow. 

Now I can’t move forward,
And it hurts too much to look back…
To once upon another life,
Before my heart was black. 

How much longer will it take,
For me to finally accept…
That once upon another life,
Is never coming back.

A Tainted Memory

Posted: 30th June 2009 by Timothy A. Rhoades in Love Poems

A tainted memory,
Haunts my heart,
The blackness growing,
Since we’ve been apart. 

When you left me,
I saw it as a game,
Looking back now,
It’s me to blame. 

You never asked for much,
Just my love and honesty,
Now this barren emptiness,
Is slowly eating me. 

I tried to find another,
To chase away the pain,
Bathing in my wake of destruction,
Fighting to be sane. 

Now in my mirror,
A black hole stares at me,
A faceless breathing robot,
With no emotions left to see. 

I go on through my days,
Trying to forget the pain,
But even when it’s sunny,
I can feel the lonely rain 

It falls down on me,
Drenching my heart in you,
And no matter how hot it beats,
It will always be an icy blue.

This Just Feels Right

Posted: 30th June 2009 by Timothy A. Rhoades in Love Poems

A blanket and a beach,
Some stars and the waves.
These simple things,
Are all my heart craves. 

A summer afternoon,
Ended with “I Love You”,
Falling harder than I meant,
Is all that I could do. 

A soft touch on my shoulder,
And a whisper in my ear.
Knowing in my heart,
There’s nothing left to fear. 

I close my eyes and fall,
Into this deep unknown.
Trusting with my all,
In everything you’ve shown. 

To share a life with you,
To share eternity,
Looking at my future,
That’s all I seem to see. 

The chance to call you wife,
And hold our child tight,
Seems to me to echo,
How “This Just Feels Right”.

Standing in Sin

Posted: 30th June 2009 by Timothy A. Rhoades in Love Poems

I woke this morning to the light,
That crept through my window sill.
Quietly screaming to myself,
Wondering why life goes on still. 

I get ready for my day,
And fight back all my cries.
I go on through this life,
Trying to forget all the lies. 

Others try to get close,
But I push them all away,
Finding all their faults,
Looking for everything wrong they say. 

I’ve locked my heart up tight,
With you still inside,
Surrounding myself with smiles,
Behind the laughter I hide. 

Maybe someday soon to come,
I will let someone in,
But until that sun rises,
Alone my heart will stand in sin.

A Fool’s Game

Posted: 30th June 2009 by Timothy A. Rhoades in Love Poems

What is Love?
But a fool’s game?
Who needs love?
Leave the fools to tame,
The wild nature of that emotion.
Let them bear heartaches name.
Let them be the ones,
That bow their head in shame. 

If this be a fools job,
Then let me be he,
The fool who knows for himself,
And now does see,
That love is the blessing,
That sets our souls free.
