 Elsie`s Poetry



Like the Phoenix I`m going to rise from the ashes,
I`ll hide my tears no more behind my eye lashes,
In vain, I have cried `til I can cry no more,
Silent tears, now just a part of the ocean floor.

I don`t feel quite as fragile as I once did,
All my heartache and emotions from you I hid,
But no more will I hunger for what cannot be,
For at the end of the tunnel the light I can see.

I am stronger than what I was a short while ago,
Heartache, sadness and loss is what I come to know,
But it`s over now so I plan to rise again,
The turmoil and hurt nearly gone, I once again feel sane.

I look at the road I thought I should be taking,
It now reads `closed` and it is quite heart breaking,
Maybe it wasn`t quite the right time you see,
Wrong time, wrong place but the person was right for me.

It wasn`t to be and so this I must face,
Headlong into a romance I was going to race,
But I was stopped in my tracks by a twist of fate,
It stopped me dead and also slowed my heart rate.

Gone are the dreams of `what if`s` and `might have beens`,
Although I think to be together was in our genes,
I thought we had a good future, I was mistaken,
`Cos you have left me now forlorn and forsaken.

I`ll put this behind me that`s all I can do,
Our love has been taken just as sure as it grew,
I have rebuilt the pieces from heartbreak and pain,
Now I know I am ready, to RISE AGAIN.
