I feel like a jilted lover;
Uncared for -
left behind.
Replaced by another.
I must move on.

I seek happiness
and peace.
Not too much of a demand.
Just embrace and
welcome me;
Give me a place to stand.

And tell you my deepest thoughts,
my desires, my fears.
I want to tell you of
the sorrows and  trials
I have been through
all these years.

Perhaps I have found you;
It feels safe and warm
in this new place
beyond the storm
of neglect and despair.

Shall I stay there?
exhale and trust again?
I must….
or be left
on my own
to fare.

No home
to retreat.
No comfort
for my soul.
Lost and wandering
no hand to hold.

Can it be?
Am I dreaming?
I am now wanted back
in the arms of my
first true love?

But will the same
disappointment, desertion,
await?
if I return
and embrace,
will this sorrow abate?

I cannot decide
first loves are hard to leave
even when abused,
call me naïve.        

Can you relate to my tale?
of distrust and neglect?
decisions to be made -
lover to select
so that the same does not happen
as did in days bygone….

which one to pick?  Which “Salon”?

Ah, good one! Very good indeed. We need to be cautious in matters of the heart. :)
I feel your pain. I'm not writing much personal stuff but I am reading both places. We'll just see what develops.
You raise questions that are being faced by many of us. For me, the First Love seems to be the sweetest...
Os will always be my first love... always has been and always will. Parting was such sweet sorrow.
HUGGGGGGG

one is one
one is the other
together they are they
nothing more
something less or more
both are them
You had me going. But, you're right, that's how it feels. And a little like juggling two boyfriends, or cheating on one, when you go to both places.
This is achingly, painfully beautiful, so much so that the last line took me by surprise. You gave form and substance to my muddled feelings. As Cat Stevens sang, "the first cut is the deepest."
I'm so glad you all understand. I had a hard time actually putting this in words but it seemed to come together today.
@Margaret - I'm glad the last line took you by surprise. that's what I was going for. And Cat Stevens first sang "the first cut is the deepest"? I had no idea.
Trilogy, he wrote the song & sang it too. Many covers but I still like his version the best.
Tough place to be, do only what’s right for you
OMg there is a sunny side to this somewhere I am sure...
