Where are you, love?

Where are you, love?

I’ve been looking for you everywhere

Even crossed the world to be with you

Thought I finally met you there

Instead you broke my heart in two

I was hurt beyond compare

And finally left in despair

Where in the world must I go now

Til I can finally find you?

Where are you, love?

.

Dear Lord

Dear Lord,

I’m at the end of the road

Here I am again, as always

Somehow I’ve managed to lose my ways

I’m all alone and feeling lonely

That makes my life completely empty

Without my husband nor a friend

Feel there’s no one I can depend

I see my world without future

Just hanging on like this is torture

For I have nothing to look forward

Body and soul completely battered

Dear Lord, oh my sweet dear Lord

In this world so full of hate and discord

Please hear me cry out in agony

And help me out of my misery

Delores’ Sagacity

O heavy heart that aches with despair

Lost, despondent, and left to die

O the soul that concedes to the pain

Inside of me that yet abides

Where is the joy that this life was to bring?

Days I would escape memories of the forgotten?

Hope is gone and darkness to swallow me

 Like grass that blankets the earth

 Joy, a facade; a mask to hide the plights

Of unrelenting torment

Wondering in the dark

Nightmares transmute reality

Seasons unchanging

The hand that is bitterness

Hold only misery and sorrow

Wielding its sword to fell

Every instrument of suffering

But, alas weary

Fatally wounded

I am, undone

Delores Collins: This poem was written by me in Jan 2007.

This Wretched Loneliness

12 years of marriage, two wonderful kids, then he breaks my heart.
Unable to understand, unable to cope, I decide that we must part
The misery was lifted and a sudden rush of freedom felt within
A new desire to achieve the goals that I couldn’t when with him
As time moves on I find myself going through the motions of life
Not with the vigour that I expected but slow and forced and grim
I realise that I’m not used to living all alone
A year later the loneliness gnaws inside my bones
An admirer may come and bring light into my life but it fades so quickly
the moment they go. Never knowing when I’ll see them next
If it’s soon then that’s great, If they’ve something better to do then its
wretched
This is not living, its existing at best
What I really need is a partner to share my life, thoughts and burdens.
Two people encouraging each other, loving each other and sacrificing for each
other
The kids are here to keep me busy all day
But as night sets in there is nothing to say
Because no one is here, no one to listen, no one today
No one tonight
so I’ll just pin my hopes on tomorrow.

My Heart Will Always Be Yours

I feel like I’m getting sucked into a black hole

The life I live is no longer my own

I see strangers wandering along my path of misery

I used to have a reason, a reason to stay

In this rat infested place we call earth

But when you said goodbye

All my hope and desires just went away

I can’t sleep, I try to close my weary eyes

But all I can think about is you

I can’t help wondering how things would’ve been

If I only just said what I felt, deep inside…

But I tell you now; even I know it’s too late

My love for you is the only thing that kept me standing

Now I’m tired, still standing in line

Waiting till my time has come

The day you said goodbye, my heart was ripped apart

There were times I thought things were getting better

Times I thought I could love another

But they all turned out the same

The girl got hurt and I stood alone, once again

If I would only get one more chance

If you’d only know what I felt for you

Things might be turned out differently

But I feel my end is getting near

So I can only hope we meet again

Not in this life but in the next

Where we can begin a fresh start

My love for you is eternal and shall forever last

Now I say goodbye and wait for you

On the other side

Entangled in Emotion

I am half drowned in shadows

Brought forth to the light

The empty wisp of warmth pulled out of my sight

And I am choking of loneliness

The key is yet unfound

That would stop my wandering brain from becoming unbound

And yet here I remain

In my own garden of misery, where the earth bleeds forth tulips and poppies and twain.

So walk away from the girl who is too entangled

The thoughts at her feet are broken and mangled

Her hair is so messed

Her sky isn’t blue.

And the thing she keeps telling her self isn’t true.

Darkness creeps around her

Its hands on her ankles

Pulling her down, seducing and secure.

But I keep on standing, for time is a blur.
