a poem about lost love

Submitted:Sep 13, 2011    Reads: 11    Comments: 2    Likes: 2   

In the spring of our content,

we were in love.

We were woven together on red silk,

strung high above the clouds in

the ever blue sky,

to float down to earth at our leisure.

And we floated slowly, drawing time out,

making space longer.

But in the end, all things must come

back down to Earth -

even those created in Heaven.

When we touched down on the cold, unforgiving ground,

our beautiful silk ribbon became undone

And we found ourselves unable to hold on

and unable to rip apart.

It was epic, our struggle for love,

and it broke us both.

We died slowly, our hearts freezing

within us that cold winter.

And love's light and luster

left our eyes and souls.

We vowed that we would always love,

eternal love,

no matter what might come.

And we left each other and

ourselves in that place,

too filled with memories

for me to breathe.

And now, they tell me

that you are wrapped in

another's passionate embrace.

And my heart breaks all over again.

I never stopped, never turned the faucet off -

I have not forgotten that you once told me

that we would always have a maybe.

I've held on more tightly to that maybe

than I care to say...

"Move on," they tell me.

But I simply can't fathom the idea.

I see how the world turns and evolves

and buries people like me

and forgets eternal loves,

forgets those maybes that keep

forlorn lovers alive...

I promise you I will move on

as soon as I figure out how...
