Oct. 28th, 2018 @ 05:17 pm Poem - Leave Before
Current Mood: contemplativecontemplative
Tags: ,
The poem “Leave Before” was prompted by the challenge of talking to somebody you know, sat down in a chair, and listening to brutal sharing. The poem is a rework of poem from 2015. The original work was about a letter. The prompt also asked for 100 or fewer words. This poem comes with an important disclaimer. These are not the words I would share with a possible person today, but they do reflect where I was in the distant past.


Leave Before

I met you and I knew
with no doubt in my mind
you were to be the only one
matching parts that would fulfill
questing gaps in my soul

listen to this beseeched rant
a message I have weighed
in the dark where thoughts play
between the spaces of pure joy
when you were absent from my world

you’ve become unattainable
I’ll speak no more with my words
tears blind my eyes and choke my throat
as intentions tear my heart
leave before I’m totally lost.
