A poem I wrote tonight. Photo is a painting I made. Enjoy 🙂
In all the times you were gone
I searched where you weren’t existent
unaware of your presence, where,
our known emotions had gathered.
In a happenstance your feelings came to fruition;
Why were you hiding? Why so afraid?
At my awareness, your retraction, and my bemuse reaction,
all we said were stares.
If going back to what we were, became the intention;
Why the silence? Why the smile?
What we chose once was the place you distanced from.
I stuck and waited, with denial as my saviour.
There are no more words that can vanish what hurt,
but that one action healed what I never thought was possible.
And it replayed in my mind;
the smiles, the songs, the rhythm of our nights.
