The Chasm In My Heart

I have done this a few times and nothing gets saved! This is about my poem dream I had one night long ago.

A Poem about Love Across Time.


I believe from the beginning it was just a silly little game, Then slowly over the years, there began between us a searing flame. And this kind of love would upset some people's apple carts, And that began the chasm in our hearts


In my dream, you called out to me which you don't do a lot. It was a dream where for our lives that you and I fought, In a cataclysm of water that tore us apart And left us with a chasm in our heart


A great gem we shared us two, A bright sparkling Ruby divided between me and you. We were separated and torn apart, And what it left was a chasm in our hearts.


The age difference divided you and me, And we kept our silence as we knew we could never be. I chose not you but to another, I became a part,And it left a chasm in your heart


So you found another, who was similar to me, And you told me to let you be. So after many years I have let you be and we have been apart, And that left a chasm in my heart


From the beginnings of Atlantis to the end we have been twin souls, But for this life one life, we were not to stoke the embers of our love's coals.As the deluge of water came.I was swept in and the waters they did tear us apart, This started the chasm in our hearts.


Frantically we reached out to each other. You were on the land and I was in the water, You had one half of our Ruby and I had the other part, That which began the pain in the chasm of our heart


Deep from beneath the waters, I could see you, From the deep, I swam up to reach you. Once I emerged from the water with the Ruby that was my part, We tried to close the chasm in our hearts.

I put the ruby against the back of your head, In my dream, you once again showed me that the love we have is not dead, It's just in this life we have to learn our Soul's other parts, And so is this chasm in our hearts.


I could never admit that I really did love you, So it was I who had to be the cruel one to divide me and you.I knew that this kind of love burned way too hot and for now we must live with this chasm in my heart


If for only this lifetime it would be, That you and I apart we should be. Let the next life be that we shall be not divided from each other’s hearts, And truly close that chasm in our hearts.

A Bit Of Reincarnation...

You see I was in love with a man in another era and space and time. I died in that account in that era and time. You know what, I drowned in that oceon or on the land they called Atlantis the exact way they described the Tsunami. I am afraid of drowning and will not go to the beaches and go into the water. I am still here living another life with another set of experiences and learning lessons from this life. I don't know if that person in that dream and I will ever meet long term but in this life it was a short time, like 5 years. He was much too young for me. Strange things happen in all my lives and make me think about all of them. Some others have the same types of things in their lives too—something to think about.

Love life and understand some of the lessons you chose in the life you are living now.

Uh, I am supposed to have 800 words and don't right now so I am writing this because this poem was written a long time ago, about 30 years ago or longer.

We will see how many words I have now! I hope it is enough. Nope, another few words should do it. Now I am wondering what I learned from this ...


You realize what this is from don't you? My other hub is about my Near Death Observance.
