Poem. “Silence the Echoes.” A reflection. @pursoot #RRBC #RWISA

Poem

It has been quite a while since I’ve penned a poem. Today caught me in a reflective mood, just edging into sadness.

Please, darling sleep on a little longer

Let me watch the sunrise chase those shadows from your face.

Please, darling … sleep on a little longer

For I need to be much stronger

To see your warm eyes open…

And find that in lieu of love there waiting

 Indifference lives in its stead.

 

I know not when or how I lost you

I only know I have.

The words too late for speaking

Will not pass our lips

For there’s naught that we can say

To keep the pain at bay.

I gaze back with tears free flowing

To a time, you’d once awakened glowing

From the tender love, we’d made

Barely hours before.

But any price worth paying now

Would never be enough somehow

The damage runs too deep.

 

Please, darling … sleep on just a little longer

I know it won’t be long now …

Until you’re aware … then disappear

The final door will close now

The emptiness lay waiting …

Please, darling … sleep on just a little longer

For I need to be much stronger …

 Another is outside waiting

Your future lay with her …

I’ll try to keep the best memories intact

Our child must never witness

The despair that would surely grow

If we dragged our injured love so far beyond its time

 

But for now, please darling … sleep on a little longer …

For I need to be much stronger

To see your once warm eyes open

Revealing coldness in their stead.

*

Just a little longer.

  1. You hit that moment perfectly in this poem. In the pain right as it ends hanging on to that last hope before it leaves. I could feel all of that. Powerful Soooz.

    1. 🌹Thanks, Denise. I’m fortunate to count my 1st Husband as a very dear friend. But when the marriage disintegrated after 30 years together it was utterly shattering. Time does heal, but only if we are willing to allow it to do so.
