“Expectations Too High”

Sorrowful tears are streaming down my face
our parting ignites my heart to the core
As I witness your tears run dry once more
never to occupy my secret place.

As birds fly as do seasons away
so does love in blackness of nightmares
We should condemn ourselves for love's decay
of the unblessed future of caution's care.

Instead reward our faith's efforts at all
closure calmly haunts or the lack thereof
To deliberately fade away love's call
fly high for peace on free wings of the dove

We must declare farewell to the cursed past
never to worry the dark shadows cast.

 Timothy Michael DiVito c1996
“Farewell is not a final step”

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
