When Justice came to whisper

If I have left you in question
of why your names I do not want to mention-
maybe you’re quizzical
since I’ve been antithetical-

You could ask: “where’d she go?”
Arguably, wouldn’t you like to know?

The whole time I showed up to be there,
futile attempts to express my care
and to think I have travelled distances to you,
money-less in pocket,
but you calculated traffic and time,
while I was laying bare
soul, heart and mind
to(o) many, still unaware

How my hand was extended,
always remaining open-ended
until that day came
when justice came to whisper
how things haven’t been even

Hands grow tired
when they aren’t greeted,
even more so
when they aren’t given a chance to greet
at unrequited invitations.

You left me to hang on
an uneven keel.
Had you forgotten-
energy is collateral
you thought you could steal.
Don’t be surprised then
if I’m not there to deal
the hand that sees
no Justice in your cards.

    Hi, This was a beautiful expression of what I considered to be non-reciprocal love. Then I got cerebral and considered the other person not knowing how to love the way the other person needed or required to be loved. Probably the Libra in me….lol. Thank you, I feel a little inspired to write again.

      *sigh*. Yeah, I get cerebral too like that.. lol. I feel the need to justify everything. Sometimes I wonder if I’ve ran my chart correctly- because I don’t have any Libra anywhere (I think).

    I would love to talk to you.. this poem and the Libra reading that you did is so amazingly accurate when it relates to a relationship that I am currently trying to reignite with a Libra. It is a long story but know that your poem and the reading seemed to be coming to you directly from his energy. It made me open my eyes as to his feelings concerning the past thank you so much!
