sad way

thCAW0NR7V

often in
vulnerable
moments

or any
random
millisecond

in
the
tiniest

stain

scent

syllable

spark

igniting its
p a i n f u l
memory

because

i hold so near
the echo of
e a c h

tear

i

ever

caused

…and regrets
and my searing
m e l a n c h o l y

but
if this
is the

story
of the
world

unfolded

why such
a sad way to
…finally reach

shore

home

find

love

y o u ?

.
We only hurt the ones we love
Why we don’t need a reason
Gonna get all that you deserve
And all that you believe in

    Deep, I´m no poet but to my untrained eye I think is quite original the way you write and did I say deep? Stay frosty

  2. Really liked the structure here and the sentiments. “Or any random millisecond” …..just a warm sigh.

    The way back is always painful, it seems, as is the way forward… I really like the feel and the flow of this.

    • at least to this heart, remembering, appreciating all that came before matters whether it’s sad or not. ty again for reading so many of my words and taking the time for such inciteful replies. it means a great deal to me.
