GONE


GONE


Photo: Google Images


Pictures of you
Haunt me…
Smiling, frowning, laughing,
They tell me
Stories of what was
Of desires, longings lost and gone…
My eyes search yours
And always the same questions
Torment my heart…
Why me? Why you?
Turmoil singe my inside…
I feel a prisoner
Banished to the hellish gallows
Of lost dreams,
Trapped and damned
Tied to an eternal wrack
I try to rise above the
Heart wrenching pain…
Scrambling and scratching
Up the walls of my
Damp and cold dungeon
Nails torn and bleeding…
At times the light above
Clears my sullied vision
And I breathe easy
Hope seems not a distant dream
I sit for endless hours
Weaving fantasy and reality
Into a fine bright tapestry,
Intertwined with motifs of love,
Laughter, bliss and ecstasy…
My journey less tiresome
Then that trigger again…
A voice, a thought, a memory,
A song, a smell…
Plunges me into my hell
My hunger, my longing, my desire
Like gadflies drive me insane
As I scream and wail
With no respite in sight
Why? I cry fruitless tears,
Knowing there are no answers
You are gone for always
And so have I…

  4. It's like a song that goes on and on. I have just cut all the strings that bound me to him...but, when the trigger sets in, it still feels like salt rubbed in an injury. But perhaps the pain is less.

    You are so gifted soul sis. This poetry is precious to me.

    Lots of love :*

  12. Rimly, there is never a time when I visit your blog, read your poetry, and I'm shaken to the very core. Your words are so powerful, your emotions so tangible, and the feelings that come through are so real, it's scary. I think most of us can relate to having loved and lost. It's heart wrenching and leaves one feeling just as this beautiful poem describes. Wonderful, wonderful piece, my friend! :)
