I completely forget


About missing you




In one single moment


You come to the surface


Of my lake




Once again, I drown.




  • Goldfinch60

    May the drowning be drowned in love.

      Good write Teddy.
      Now I write:
      'Sometimes I sing; sometimes I don't
      Sometimes I got me teef in; sometimes not'.
      I do talk some rubbish - sometimes? Aww, why they say - Always! lol.

      • Teddy.15

        Sometimes! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

        So, so true Teddy! That's exactly how it happens when we're trying to stay afloat the surface the lake of longing. I love it!

        • Teddy.15

          Thank you dear Garth, this one can certainly be interpreted by each reader. Hugs my friend 🤗

          Got a feeling this is the one who got away. There might have been others to take his place, but he's the one who lives inside your head. This is nice, yet painful too.

          • Teddy.15

            Not in real life Paul, actually for me this is about losing someone who died, but this one is also for the reader to decide, and I see many have their own idea, which is what I wanted, thank you dear Paul. 🤗🤗🤗🤗

                    We are always here ( go figure)
                    Verbal drowning can happen to anyone,be it good or bad.Its the "envelopment" of memories which keeps us/them alive.

                    • Teddy.15

                      For me this is about someone who is no longer here, thank you dear Neil. 🤗

                      without any fear of contradiction, they just don't get much better than this x
