We sit in the silence, no more words to be said, what we once had is most certainly dead.
We once had forever, no doubts plagued my mind, and now only now, I can see I've been blind.
Will you stay here with me, for just one more day? holding me close as we watch the sun fade away.
It's the least you could offer, given the situation, you're meant to be mine, my only safe haven.
It was me and you forever, you can't walk away, you're bound to my heart until my bones begin to decay
I am not okay.
These memories we created, begin their cremation, I have a smile on my face but this is no celebration.
I remember how you looked at me, happy and content, like I was your angel that you'd personally been sent and now your
eyes are filled with resent.
That laugh you'd only let out when I was around, now has it's own shallow grave under the ground.
Your cheeks would turn red when I merely said your name, looking at you now it's clear you don't feel the same and the worst
part is, I don't know who to blame.
The quiet suffocates me, I'm barely breathing, the pain would be less if I was physically bleeding, this hunger to cry has
only just began feeding..

as my mind begins to process it's us that i'm grieving.

    Last line says it all. Very touching poem. Wonderful job.


    THANKS FOR SHARING WILD CHILD ! I have had several such experiences in my lifetime ~ a loving relationship can fade in a single day. I made me sad for what I had experienced ~ but also glad because I am wiser and stronger now in the ongoing experience of LOVE ! Hugs BRIAN

    Great job here in describing the devastation caused by loss of a long term partner, and raises some powerful questions. Is anybody really to blame? Whatever the circumstances, grief is always difficult to combat. Brilliant piece xx
