What do you do
When it’s finally over?
When trying harder is not enough
When rescues come too late, this time
When you are past the point of no return
It is a cruel and painful place
Suspended in the in-between
Between ending and beginning
Between letting go and touching again
Between leaving and loving
Suspended in the empty void
It is a sad and lonely space
When tears flow without comfort
When numbness and pain collide
When faith and love bleed
When it’s finally over
What do you do?

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems
This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays.
