Smoke

Opened. Escaped smoke.
Reflection on what ones lost.
Now one with the sky.

Such Loss

So much lost today.
Of the pieces left behind,
I’m glad you’re still here.

That Which Was Lost

Overwhelming to the point of breaking.
This last thought, the straw, broke the camels back.
A grief so heavy, such life force taken.
The strength to go on is something he lacks.
How long to remember? How long to hold?
What would be different if known what was last?
Now to sit and watch the wreckage unfold.
He crumbles and more so than others, fast.
A preposterous idea proposed:
“Maybe, just maybe.” he hears himself say,
And looking up to the sky, his eyes closed,
Asking if he’ll see her again one day.
All at once he screams, for he does not know,
Awakening those who await below.

Requiem for a Day too Long

Within the wreckage
So much pain.
Not all lost,
But not much gained.
This failing vessel,
Blind to the sea,
I never know
What’s awaiting me.
All is drained,
The fuel gone.
Now for my broken soul
And it’s sad song.
A requiem for a day too long.

Lost In October

Sober is and does as sober.
I remember last October,
When turned red the leaves,
And such a fire was shown in trees.
It was a time for autumn and loves lost.
For such things beyond cost.
There was a morning I grew weary,
And not long after then was teary.
That love lost was my mistake.
I could not prevent, her heart did break.
The bottom of that bottle,
Held not the hope I’d wished to coddle.
Now one year later, six months dry,
There are sometimes that I still cry.
Sober is as sober does.
That I’ll remain because,
That lost love did yield some learning,
And that next one I find, yearning,
Or the next one that I lose,
Some foolish bottle, for me won’t choose.

My Turn To Say Goodbye

For once it is my turn to say goodbye,
And you wondered if you would see the day.
Of all the unasked questions, don’t ask why.
You know the answer, to you I would say.
At one time I loved you, I truly did.
We had no need for secrets between us.
When first we had suffered, when first you hid.
The bridge that began to die was our trust.
And with that dead, nothing much left to save.
It was your choice, and you chose to end it.
Your tears are nothing but ash, burnt and grey.
You chose his over mine. You can keep it.
I’ll always miss you, it’s you I love most.
But this I can’t forgive, through it I can’t coast.

I’m Sorry

I’m sorry I left you.
I’m sorry I lied.
I’m sorry I forgot.
I’m sorry you cried.
I didn’t mean to hurt you,
I wish I would’ve tried,
To give you what you needed,
I’m sorry we died.
I wish I would’ve stayed.
I know we could’ve made it,
But I left you alone,
And didn’t try to save it.
I sorry for all the
Things I didn’t say.
I’m sorry I left you
Waiting that day.
I’m sorry I made you cry.
I wish I would’ve said goodbye.
