Was it love to begin with?

 

 
 
 
Too many voices in their head,
Not knowing which to follow,
They danced the tune, but missed the step,
They danced the dance, with passion hollow,
 
Blisters on her toes he made,
Blisters that his pride enraged,
Too many steps they missed of late,
Their hearts and minds were not engaged,
 
Though tight he held her in his arms,
Far away the loving looks,
Far away of all her charms,
As reading from some different books,
 
No more, they, together danced of late,
No more the tunes of angels’ songs,
No more of loving songs, but hate,
Now hate instead, were love belongs,
 
Far away the music plays,
The fare to happiness too far,
Instead, in misery they spend their days,
Both wishing on a different star,©04/07/2012

Sadly, this is a timeless and universal theme of this world/life, Jasmin. Thank you for sharing. Love, peace, and best wishes,

Sighing as I read this as I no longer desire to hear the melody, much less dance! Thank U poet!

"They danced the tune, but missed the step,"
what a great way of seeing the whole thing, Jasmin,
and the 'romance' of dance serves as a sustained irony
for the entire poem while reflecting the love that
started out with so much hope and promise only to...
the final line is laced with sadness

well written

It is often hard to differentiate between desire and love and often time is the only true way to measure which it is. As for divorce, I think it is often the only answer.

Very good, Jasmin. You certainly capture the distance of a broken relationship.I enjoy the way this one flows so easily over the mind - probably because of the fairly tight control over meter and rhyme.You keep improving!
Reviewed by Diana Legun (Reader) 7/4/2012
What an astute way to portray this happening. It sways with the charm gone long away, like a sad change so well-written in "Now hate instead, where love belongs," You have created an effective real place in life. ~~ Diana

Jasmin,
It is too bad that this is true for far too many a young and old today.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 7/4/2012
The hope of eternal love… Springs eternally. Unfortunately, young lust does not make for a long loving relationship. As you so clearly point out.
