Soul Sisters


I am looking down
But I still feel it,
I know he is there:
Looking at me.

It’s been years since
And it wasn’t anything
Serious, in a socially
Acceptable sense.

But I gave him a part of
Myself: a part I can
Never get back. A part
I didn’t even know I

Was giving away but
I feel it now. The loss. I
Grieve for it and want
It back.

And I look at my friend,
Making the same mistake.
I want to show her
The hole in my soul,

Warn her that the
Loss is so painfully real,
It’s physical.
His eyes meeting mine

Across the bar,
Makes my soul ache.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes we inflict pain on ourselves without knowing and we blame others. That's why we are so sad when things end. We know we are to blame.
