STAY


 

 

STAY

Don’t leave me

Don’t go away

Stay by my side

Please don’t let me slide

 

I know you aren’t really here

I can’t see you anywhere

But I can still see our love

In my bed and right above

 

You left last week

You walked out on me

You said we were through

You wanted someone new

 

But I can’t let you go

I must feel you by my side

So I cling to memories

In my dreams, our love, you and me

 

You insisted on walking on

Take your clothes, take it all

But when you turned to leave

I stole our memories.

“We started dying before the snow, and like the snow, we continued to fall.” — Louise Erdrich, Tracks

 

We started dying before the snow

And like the snow, we continued to fall

The relationship I had counted on for years to come

Had stopped when I stood by in the shadows

My heart beat faster, my breathing quickened

As I watched her replacing my lips

And tears began to fall and I tasted salt

Blinking because I wanted to watch it all

He is ripping my heart into bits of a puzzle

As I see him caressing her hair

What had I done to cause him to turn

The words on his lips that used to be mine

I knew in my heart as the snow began and then stopped

The virgin flakes transferred from mine to her

She was willing to give the one thing I could not

And as I watched them kneel and then lay one on one

My hands bled into the other

For what he desired he was fulfilling this moment

As I stood in the shadows and the snow once again began to fall.

Love, What Once Was


I saw him coming towards me. Looking straight a head his eyes never meet mine. His soul being left behind from years gone by. Memories he lived with, a cold heart remains still.

There was once upon a time when our eyes would meet and the heat between us would fire up as if someone had stoked our coals. We would reach out for one another, hands touching, hearts beating to the rhythm of love.

We became one again as we lay on the familiar places that hold our most intimate secrets that only the two of us have ever created. In the shadows of the night his touch would fill spots that only he knew in such a personal way.

No fumbling, accurate timing, taking me to limits way above the clouds. But now, only slight memories remain. Digging deep into my past, trying to surface what is left, only to find tears being shed from my eyes. The heart takes a dip and lowers into doom and if I am not careful, I can fall in to the pit of depression.

Today, he walks by me, our arms do not brush and I look out over the horizons wondering my future. Remembering what once was and what could once be again. Wanting to be touched but returning to my cold, empty bed once again.

Lying in the darkness, my cat reaches out to me, purring and cuddling up to me. I reach out knowing exactly his favorite places to touch. Behind his ears, rubbing his belly, he purrs, showing me he is enjoying the special attention. Letting me know he is forever my friend, snuggling up close to me.

Even my pet seems to know that his owner is lonely, and as he tries to do his best, I wait, while two tears fall to the side, hoping and carrying my faith that once again I will know love.

Is life worth living

Can we see afar

When all is so

Destitute and the

Will is gone

No reason to live

When the only

One I loved is

Now resting

Over there

Among the old

Oak trees

While she is at peace

My mind is so jumbled

I want to be with her so

But I know I can not

How can I go on

Without her

Please I pray

Big blue ocean

Wipe a way my tears

And take my pain a way

Take me to another

World where I will feel

Nothing……………..                                                                   pictureitandwrite2copy-1
