Today I’d like to share with you some poetry I experimented with writing some time ago.  This poem is about life, love, truth and doing what’s right for you.  It has a slightly different style to my usual poems, with an ending I’m unsure about, so I’d love any thoughts you might have about it as I’m not sure whether this is considered a darker or more uplifting poem.  I’m hoping that it’s the latter. 🙂  Have a wonderful day everyone! ❤

Life With You

©The Strawberry Post

I knew your pain as you did mine,
A kindred soul, love divine.
I wept, I shared all my fears,
You held me tight through all the tears.
Felt our hearts were true, entwined,
Our broken pasts were all behind.

I finally see through;
A new life with you.

Together we made fresh new start,
Vowed to never be apart.
Happiness, peace, at last inside,
When we joined: husband, bride.
Pact, a promise we did seal,
For our lives, true ideal.

I finally see through;
A new life with you.

Days and months becoming years,
Came the laughter, came the sneers.
Nothing ever done too right,
Always ready for a fight.
Talking in a monotone,
Left at home all alone.

I finally see through;
A new life with you.

I knew your pain as you gave mine,
A blackened soul, love a brine.
I wept, realised all my fears,
You held me tight, caused all the tears.
Felt your heart untrue; I pined,
My broken past left me blind.

I finally see through;
Life: illusion with you.
