CRY NOT FOR ME


My darling, when you cry, weep not for me, but for the love in your midst that you purposely refused to acknowledge.

You dance before kings and men of the night while believing yourself to be more prestigious than someone adorned with simplicity or residing in poverty.

Every woman was born for the desires of love, but sadly, only a few can separate its true meaning from the material lust of this world.

In puzzlement, I behold the vision of you blessing an infant flower with the kindness of water, but foolishly sharing the mystery of your perfumed veil with an intoxicated stranger.

Probe into my heart and you will find the kind of faithfulness every lover dreams of beneath the timeless sovereignty of love.

Lady Flower, cry not for me, but for the beauty of love that has passed you by…just like the soothing winds between your fingertips.

Darling, cry not for me, for I will soon be on my way to find and nurture an empty heart searching for a sweet and precious love like mine.

  1. Hi Andy! Gee I'm missing you without the weekly RFW posts!

    Another lovely poem. Reminds me of the old harem days. Very poignant and sad. I love Lady Flower.

    Don't forget to check out the RFW site. Have had 2 guest posts by a quite famous romance writer. Next week Francine is going to post for us...

  5. Beautiful image and poem, Andy! I like how it portrays people who only see the value of money rather than the value of a rich heart, when seeking for love. Sadly, they will never find real love ...

    Wonderful as always!! :)

  6. 'Every woman was born for the desires of love but sadly only a few can tell its true worth apart from material lust'... I paraphrase...this is so true.

    I love the wisdom in many lines of this poem, weaved in with your unique creativity, Andy.

  9. I really like how the poem ends on a positive note... and how that person with the broken heart finds the strength to move on out of the un appreciated relationship. Excellent poem!

  15. It is a sad truth that so many do not understand love and go for materialistic pleasure. But I guess it is all about choices you make in your life. Touched my heart with this one, Andy

  31. Love will always be mistaken for the material lust of the world...but what saddens me the most is when these culprits turn around to make baseless claims against love after the lust is gone or satisfied.

    I pray you find the empty searching heart that yearns for love, knows what it is, appreciates it and above all, wants to keep it. Nice read.

    Cheers!

  36. this one really captivated me

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ah.. perhaps it is for the best that you leave someone who cannot understand your love... They will appreciate that love only when it is not there.
