The Break Up

We live in nether lands of fog & shadow

Our love obscured by impossibilities

It was our sadness that drew us close

Only to create this continental divide

I, who tasted too much sorrow to know

The taste of joy from your lips

Let it slowly drown me in its tangy red

Sleepy elixir that drugged like wine

It pulled me under dark waters in long nights

Until I lost myself in blood tears

But lover, how I saw the dawn one day

Shining in the forests of your eyes

I let go of all the painful past like setting free

A thousand helium balloons to the open summer sky

I was finally free to love you without sadness

Waiting for you to return, at last full of hope

I could not wait to share this happiness

To start loving as love should be in all sweetness

For I had before given only bittersweets & doubt

Overdoing and underdoing, talking endlessly

When silence was what we needed

Thrilled to finally give you joyfulness

With a light heart & quiet care

Then you came back from your dark journeys

Leaving us behind as if it were we that died

To never know what happened, to never feel

All I had to give you if only you had waited

I could not turn the hands of time back

Did not know how to rewrite the story all at once

But the pages had turned & I had learned

My lessons all too late for love

So now I hold the shell of you in my arms

For fleeting moments in stolen nights

Until the last of you slips away like a thief in the night

And only I hold the depth of our love

Very sad. It holds something in it that most of us can relate to. Beautiful.
Reviewed by Frank Stein (Reader) 5/13/2009
Deep and powerful, but truly sad. The lessons of love come when they do... sometimes with a purpose, always with a deepening to your soul.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 4/30/2009
