Necessary but painful
Starts in the chest, a dull ache
A heart that is running its own race,
As it sinks, of its very own accord
Toughen up, grieve at your pace.
Regrets, live with each and every one
Trying to learn the necessary lessons,
Not all is bad, there’s some good to see
Although I’m not proud of my confessions.
Missing, pining, a different outcome
Too late now, the race has been run,
It was short and sweet, devastating
There were parts that were even fun.
Dreams, wishes, hopes and desires
All experienced at one time or another,
The good is written in stone and mortar
Memories and feelings for the other.
Tales woven in magic and grace
A part of life to never be forgotten,
Carried buried deep in my heart
Little nuances tried and begotten.
One day we will remember fondly
Not yet, it’s way too soon and new,
Private thoughts tormented
Replacements, we’ve both a few.
I’d love to talk some more one day
Learn, educate, mischievous play,
I would listen to all you had to say
We’ll both survive and finish okay.
At night, I vividly view and remember
No escaping my real life dreams,
You never did feel as you promised
You quit regularly or so it seems.
Our time is lost, never to be again
I’m thankful you cut off all hope,
You severed it quickly, one swift cut
Giving me the tools needed to cope.
Remember one day, the possibility
The outcome and our potential,
Discarded as easily as the bath water
Pain immediate and consequential.Recommended2 Simily SnapsPublished in
