Leaving Abruptly - Poem by Heather Burns

Why did you leave so
abruptly?
without even a good bye

leaving behind a heart
never to heal

oft times you return in
the night

dreams become blurred
a string of emotions

days are long without you
yesterday taken over by
years

Yet your image remains
How can I ever forget?

    Open up a can of love memories . But check the expiration date first. Some may be long out of date
    and best if thrown away. If you heat and simmer and pour out into a bowl. It may be just to hot to
    swallow or taste the flavors and best to wait until again it turns back cold.But life is just a chance
    we cross the road every day. If you lost a past tense love just look to the future tense. (Report) Reply

    When a lover leaves, the separation may be looked at as brief and routine. May even forget to say good bye. When the separation is longer concern and anxiety keep mounting. True love is never forgotten. Beautifully developed in the poem. (Report) Reply
