About the Poem

Seen through the eyes of a man who's discovered his love, yet only to find it is too late. He still loves, yet he can no longer have his lover. Therefore now that he is no more the fool by recognizing his devotion, he is left to love without receiving it in return.

Actual love is an experience, in the burning pain of being lost, the flames of love will flitter.

Entrapment

Hopelessly bound
unfettered
by the chains of love's grip
- greatest gift,
fate's cruelest curse.

Wherefore do I weep
at knowing the joy,
the warmth,
at feeling the peace,
the fire.

Wherefore do I weep
unable to complete ,
to be,
unknown the kiss,
the flames.

Wherefore do I weep
at loving not living
seeing not touching
breathing not sharing
holding not loving?

All,
because I, The Fool,
am no more?

Your poem was so very true and touching to me. Because, I have went though the same similar things and that really brought tears to my eyes when I read it. Because, of the simple fact that when things like that happen you really get a insit on how love can make you feel.

This poem is short, simple and sweet and the reader or i should say my self did not have to go into a thinking mode to know what the writer was saying. In the end of it all I like this poem very much.
Shannon
Beautiful poem- I know how it feels. but I have not lost faith in love.
SYLVIA
The Poem was WOW. Sometimes how we feel is not appreciated and this poem describes the feeling one is left with after rejection. I am especially touched by the post of ANONYMOUS who said he/she is only 15 years old. I am a mom to twin boys. Get assured that I care.
