Faded Purple Words - Poem by Adrian Murphy
There are words I need to bury
Written on a fading purple note
Those words that scar – I love you, I miss you
X’s and O’s that oh so innocently wound my heart
Once they were light in my hands
Lifting my heart out of darkness
Their weight now beyond me
I leave them to lurk unread.
But today they caught me
My hand frozen at the drawer
I wasn’t ready. Just a hint of colour,
My legs wilting like a rag doll.
The jolt, the fear
Blue remembered pain
The carefree hand of composition
Never again to be held within mine
There are words I need to bury.
Written on a fading purple note,
Those words that scar – I love you, I miss you.
X’s and O’s that oh so innocently wound my heart.
