Forever Long

Kurt Philip Behm

Words pulling apart

Feelings smashed to bits

Memory on the run

Meaning cast adrift

Days repeat in darkness

Lonely with the dawn

Echoes haunt my musing

—nights forever long

    Kurt, were you writing about me? Especially the 'memory on the run' sounds familiar! There are nights like that, you penned it accurately and eloquently. Beautiful choice of words. Love the line 'lonely with the dawn'. Agree with Diamond, this has to be a favorite.

      I guess I was, because as you already know, all poets go
      through this.

      Thanks for the kind words.

      I can relate to these lines of night-time frustration Kurt -- great read.

        Thanks Fay. Not too many I hope.
