What language of shared understanding

do we use my love

in ending this entangled bedlam that is us?

What ficticious words will render

this severance

barren of accusations and guilt?

Let us take leave now

with our sad remorse and longings

and linger no longer

lest our bloodless wounds fester

and our words churning in bitter bile

spew forth from guts twisted in pain...

never to be retrieved.

Yet in the certainty of end

words matter not

and are as dew drops

falling on a raging fire.

Your words are captured in the reality of relationships that are the walking dead refusing acknowledgement for far too long. It is like this in too many lives. This is an excellent write that could not have been stated any better than this.

So many carefully chosen words to say, no words will ever mask or make clear the message of goodbye. May the clarity of these words and your heart guide you to sunnier days. M.True

You have just put into words my current situation, and this write is almost a year old. It does not get any better than this, tear jerker that it is.

This is beautiful poetic literature Pat, and very spiritual
for me as I felt The Lord is Narrator & that in itself
is even more priceless to this poem's essence. Your poets voice
is lovely & beautiful, this is so much more than a love poem

In the 'write what you know' and it will show adage, you have, and IT DOES! Magnificent lines, Pat. I felt each one of them. ~~ Diana

this is a most heartbreaking write of the pain in two people seperating after love has been shared.

A stunning piece of work. Out of pain, sometimes, courage and inspiration for others emerge.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
A poignant, wise, and calmly beautiful poem of deliverance from raging words.

However, I couldn't contain myself, because I do drop words from time to time. ;-)

Some give us only the sizzle and no substance.
You give us the "whole enchilada," and you set
the page on fire.

Sorry to know of this situation, Pat, but hopefully both of you will heed this call for leaving in peace. Very hard to do. We want to lash out. To hurt. Hopefully it will not be the case here.
