Looking Back
 
 
Helplessly held in the moment as your emotions coiled around me
 

Sweet venom passed through my heart and carried away my pain

 

I couldn’t stay away and knew I would never find anyone else like you

 

Sometimes loves stays and sometimes tears of doubt wash it all away

 

As you got near I felt the intentions of how things were supposed to be 

 

Can I hold on to love or will it slip away like moonbeams in your hand

I can't help laughing at myself. This is dumb of me.   I know this is a beautiful love poem between a man and woman, but I can't shake the feeling that it perfectly describes how I felt when I first saw MY first dog.  He had a beautiful demeanor.  A Golden Lab-Great Dane cross.  We went and did everything together.  Camping, canoeing, 4 wheeling, hiking (carried his own backpack with his food and my beer)  His name was Caesar and he carried his noble name very well.
Heck, I know this isn't where you wanted to go with the poem, but I rarely walk the trails others walk.

Loved it    and thanks for the memory

I.... I have words for this.... but I am unable to find the appropriate... words, I suppose, to voice them. This is a good poem, I... Just don't know how to say what I want to say..... I guess... the easiest way to say them is, looking back can be hard, even harder to write about, but then the right woman can take away the pain, like a "sweet venom" I suppose... this is a well written poem,

Steve,
Wonderfully written.  "Sweet venom"  I have heard that venom from a snake can make you numb and remove pain, but whoa. is that what you want a woman to remove the pain? But in the end if no treatment is sought the person dies.!!!  Love certainly carries the risk of a heart collapsing at it's loss.  On the other hand if one never takes that chance, the heart will be forever longing.  Sorry for the long interpretation on this beautiful poem.

Love

Tina
