No Looking Back Again


Notice of absence from Neville


I am taking some time out to try and help out a little bit in the Ukraine .. not sure how long I will be away, but will be back .. just you mark my words .. stay safe folks N :)

No Looking Back Again

 

Looking back like that

over her

shoulder, the way

that she

always did, with those

far away

eyes of hers, like flashing

blue lights

tho’ somehow demurely

at our

old here and there’s ..

Yes there,

where we once shared

discreet,

all too brief moments

with my

breath on those lips

of hers

cold, dark and lingering

like some

tasteful, eternal eclipse ..

Back then,

I clearly remember

I had no

expectations and not

once

felt that way before ..

    Good writing Neville ))

    I especially like these lines

    โ€˜far away

    eyes of hers, like flashing

    blue lightsโ€™




    mysteriously lingering

    like some

    tasteful, eternal eclipse ..

      The pathos of losing what way back was hoped for of "old here and theres" comes over so touchingkly in these lines of memory dear friend.
      A read to remember so tucked into my favourites...........x

          ............... indeed, perhaps maybe .. or should I say, maybe, perhaps indeed .. I thank you tho' regardless ๐Ÿ’–

          It's almost like a sinful succulence, isn't it? Memory. For its sake men die every day. It's cruel, so very sweet, sour, and always ready to grab you by the neck. I wonder which one this is for the Author. A splendid read, Sir Neville. Thank you for the kick in the head. (A jumpstart really)

          • Neville



            a most welcome visit .. how kind you are sir .. many thanks indeed .. Neville

              "Don't look back!" they tell us, yet we always do! How can we not? Bitter-sweet memories still have their pull on our hearts and minds! A poignant poem, with universal appeal, I believe, Neville! Beautifully expressed!

              • Neville



                I can't thank you enough Distant View for your lovely, heart-warming & most thoughtful review comment .. N ๐Ÿ™‚

                    Dean Martin,s song -

                    Take one fresh and tender kiss
                    Add one stolen night of bliss
                    One girl, one boy
                    Some grief, some joy
                    Memories are made of this

                    best describes my feeling about your post today.

                      Memories good or bad
                      Memories happy or sad
                      When they hit you........
                      Beautiful lines.

                          Young love, leaves the door open , mature love doesnโ€™t care. True love embraces the closure,
                          Excellent poem
