Older The Better

One man lives on the edge. Another lives to forget. Can one bad choice be made right after fourteen years of denial?..

Pensive deeming my thoughts amid the clutter
rumblings of thunder further resounding my soul
while lightning streaks my heart as I read your
"dear john" letter wreaking stormy weather

Quartz of crystal Winter as pristine fallen snow
was our love..what went wrong in the acclamation
to Spring budding our forever Summer affirmations

Space and time you say, wait for me...shall I?
or move on to another plane dancing in the rain

Empty is my lap of you but for worthless
words with an absence of understanding

A dilemma I can not see myself for waiting
yet not wanting to proceed with bare feet

(c) Absence of Understanding

though the feet may be bare, what of the soul... this verse hits the notes of a soul whose revelation conceals much more than it reveals... and amid the lap dance of "worthless words" lies an understanding that underlies the colour of the "absence of understanding"... gone through this poem like Merwin's "thread through a needle--everything...stitched with" the colour of that absence... hence the dilemma at the close...

a fine conundrum of a relationship is herein depicted...

You have voiced a very common predicament here, to stay or to move on. Somebody should have worked out the odds by now to help those of us who dither. I'm sure the safe choice is to proceed, bare feet or not.

Great gods of love, I thought I had received a Dear John a few days ago, but it was just a combination of her not making herself very clean and me reading it with disbelieving eyes. You title make perfect sense to me, Vivian.

proceeding with bare feet can be a dangerous move especially when the shards of shattered emotions are the floor walked upon ...

emotionally potent poem, Vivian ...

Awesome! A work of art! And I understand every word. Words of lost love stumbling picking yourself up and moving on to your next love.
