Common ground

Inside the silence

that knows no bounds

two lovers search

for common ground

Each one struggling

to find their own way

hurtful words tossed about

until there's no more to say
From different worlds

they did come

still they found each other

though it seemed strange to some
Through outside pressure

they fell apart at the seams

each treading all over

the other's dreams

Now the battlefield is empty

there's no more sound

love came up empty

from no common ground

I think you found a great way to express something that so many feel. Well done!

Dear Henry,

We will never know what true love is unless we first experience what it is not. Touching poem my friend--the truths within are heartbreaking yet familiar. Honesty in poetry is very appealing--there is nothing as powerful as when a poet's heart speaks. Nicely said!

Oh boy can I so relate to this!!! Sounds like my divorce.. :) or maybe I should add :(

Your wording was so out there that i can imagine many can relate to this, as many relationships sometimes get to this point..

Your ending lines in this were brilliant.. It actually made me sit up and gasp to myself..

Yuppers, reading ti again...

Another powerful write, Henry...and sadly, I think that too many people can relate to this far too well. When love dies it leaves a hole in the heart and soul that you think will never be filled again.

LOL I think you need to start listening to comedy!

Just kidding :-)

Seriously, though, this is amazing, as always!
