Finalized Past and Future


I caught myself thinking about you.
I shuddered and I then realized.
There must be something about you
That was left over and now I agonize.

Come Sunday caught me in frustration.
Come Tuesday and I just let it run away.
Then on Thursday came a certain confirmation.
That the end had come and you had your way.

Now the bus
made in seconds flat.
Now the gasping
heaven sent.
All my seconds
are quickly spent.

Now no way to go

Lovely letters
up in smoke.
Timely trinkets
just a joke.
All my memories
you take away.

Now no where to go.

And oh what a loving feeling
Now no way to go
And of that living giving
Now no where to go

Hard to swallow your dreams this way.
Scrap all of your plans made for future days
And you say,

Just make up your step
And turn and disappear.
You can break that seal
You can and you will.

    Cleverly put together, am I right in thinking that there are some fairly famous song lines dotted throughout, or am I just a little more senile than I was yesterday. lol (Report) Reply

    Pathos have been well woven into a net of gossamer beauty. The way you travel together may be much short. But in the long run you both reach out to the other as expected, one hopes. (Report) Reply

    You've just written it exactly as you were feeling it. A very sad poem. The first stanza is the best. (Report) Reply

    Sad and painful sentiments are expressed in these verses. Very delightful reading when it contains universal sentiments which most people go through. Take care, Midnight's Voice. Your voice of pain is an inspiration to the readers and any form of a break or a form of saying goodbye or separating or segregating is always cutting our inside being and that makes the lines so beautiful to read.

    They come and they go
    Like flakes of snow
    Come the Spring
    Your heart will sing

    Life is one of mixed experiences, hopes and disappointments, victories and defeats, bonds and breaking of bonds! At times an inertia sets in and we feel that there is nowhere to go and nothing to do! But these are only fleeting phases of life! Hope that a new dawn awaits! A poignant write! (Report) Reply

    How pleasant it seems that the people who we love or value much wish to stay with us for longer but as soon as the the time comes of departure we are hurled in to the depth of sorrow. But life is always a endless journey and we have to go on and on till this breathing and beating gives us the favour. Nice sir Loved it. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem, gloomy but brilliantly written. I liked it all the way, in some places the pairs of words make sweet sounds that unfortunately make the pain sweeter.

    Now no way to go
    And of that living giving
    Now no where to go

    Stunning Sir (Report) Reply
