speechless, poem between two loves, joys of joel poem, affairs, infidelity


I don’t know what’s in this picture
suddenly i’m a voyeur

in the stairs of my life
while i’m in the middle of their aisle

and if a picture
speaks a thousand words

then why am i

Is it because
i can’t watch them leave

when i’m caught
playing with fire

or perhaps because
i’m clueless why

we can’t love
two people at the same time?

  1. We can but only if everyone agrees…LOL Or else you may end up with no one to love. That’s the way we set up the rules, and while rules are made to be broken, you need the rest of the players to agree on what the rules ARE before you start loving someone else at the same time:) Good luck.

        1. You’re right, it is only when the scale is empty that one is in a balance. Choices. One needs to stay, the other you must let go. I don’t know, honestly, i’m not a love expert. I’m still clueless when it comes to love Steph.

          1. I think we are clueless because we want to be able to know how to restrain the heart…which is impossible, i believe. … like asking the sun or stars not to shine.

  2. actually, no, when we play with fire, esp with pretty and perfect stars and suns that shine, we could get burned. Could wind up with nothing.

  3. I love your writing, it’s lyrical – it’s almost like I hear music to it. Hey, you could become a multi-media superstar and record an album. I see a Grammy for Best New Artist with your name on it 🙂 Harlon

    1. Thanks for that very flattering kind compliment Harlon. I have a frog’s voice, so i think music to my ears are those kind words i hear from readers like you. Such an honor to hear compliments from talented people like you. Have a wonderful week ahead.

  4. Joel, of course we can love two persons at the same time. The not so funny part is when the person you love, loves someone else too. And what’s even more heartbreaking it’s when they pick the other person.
    I know I have a heart because I feel it breaking. Broken. In pieces.
    Sometimes we accept the rules of the game because we secretly think we can change them on the way 🙂

    1. You are right, we can. Although the truth can be painful at times, But that’s how the rule works. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Paola. I appreciate that. Have a great weekend. Take Care.
