Even in love I sometimes get the blues. Just a physiological happenstance that will pass. : )

Sea of Sadness

 silent sadness deep as the ocean floor

 an undercurrent of sorrow etched in the sands of reality

  time and distance

swallow the hopes of this elusive dream

waves of hopeful desires dilute and drown

beneath the weight of uncertainties


love lies buried in the dark abyss of loss

How vivid! How relatable. Wonderfully, sadly, beautifully written. But sister, it isn't reality. This time I believe your dreams are going to come true. I believe you are going to get what you want!

I can relate to this and kind of sadness contained within it wondeful write Kathy, glad to hear its temporary.

Read my poem,' A Hundred Years of Solitude', I talk about a similar state of heart...
(((Hugs Kathy)))
Love, Zoya

I know it happens to me too.
Not only when separated by distance,
But even when deeply in love,
Together and much satisfied,
Sadness like a silken thread
Is interwoven, in the fabric of life...

((((Hugs to make you feel better dear soul sitah)))
Love, Zoya

I think we all get the blues from time to time - and love being such a heightened emotion can often bring out these feelings. Beautifully expressed of those times where uncertainty plagues our hearts dreams

Love sure is the melting pot for every human feeling .. it is a captivative state that is for sure ... it is nice you wrote of this state as well .. it something many will not see in love ..

enjoyed and took it to my heart
best wishes kath
