I find it strange

that you requite missing me

with mingling

that you equate concern

with intrusion of trust


I really don’t know


I find it strange

because I requite missing me

with solitude

and I equate concern

with unwavering devotion


I really don’t know


I find it strange

that we are in a deadlock

but solitude strays some minds

the same way that

mingling strays some hearts


I really don’t know..

  3. I was going to comment about the beauty of simple words containing such complicated emotion, however….I lost my train of thought after getting caught up in the comments, smiles!

  4. So beautifully said fiveloaf…often what we think is a way to show care and concern for another, is intrusion according to them. It is sad though, that such differences exist, and it hurts a lot. Beautiful and true poem.

  5. Another poem that digs the mystery of love and relationship. Well, true love always brings the questions of “Why?” but no correct answers to solve them.

    Nice poem. 🙂

  9. It almost seems as though one person is walking away and the other person is following and not letting go, rather than opposing forces meeting in the middle, kind of a deadlock very peculiar way of caring and two very different people.
