“Expectations Too High”

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

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

Instead reward our faith's efforts at all,
never to worry the dark shadows cast.
To deliberately fade away love's call,
we must declare farewell to the cursed past.

Fly high for peace on free wings of the dove,
closure calmly haunts our lack thereof.

Timothy Michael DiVito c1996
“On the wings of the dove”

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".
