Topic: LoveRemembered

I was coming down the stairs from a landing painted red
Closed my eyes to hide the black and the blue
You looked at me and my heart sputtered back from the dead
Figured I could use the good there in you

But I didn`t mean to use you that way
Thought you`d be a safe place to stay
And you were, you did, you gave
You were just the kind of guy I needed
But everything I felt receded
My soul, his name, engraved

I lived so long with those waves crashing down on me so hard
Then we were so still I couldn`t hear a sound
I spun around and hit the ground in complete disregard
Missed the music, even sad songs resound

I didn`t expect to leave you that way
Thought I wanted someplace away
And I did, I would, I caved
It was just too big a change too fast
The way the dark and light contrast
Unmasked, mismatched, depraved

I didn`t mean to hurt you at all
Didn`t think I had further to fall
But I did, I tripped, uphill
So if I never said I`m sorry
For being lost in purgatory
I was, I am, I will
One day, I may, be still

This is so sad beautiful heartbreaking honesty,

While every care is taken to ensure the general sites content is family safe, our moderators cannot be in all places; all the time.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
