10 Years After These Lines Bleed Me - Poem by Charles Lara

no replies
no words
no hellos
no goodbyes
nothing in my heart
if I would have
if I should have
if I could have slept
without a fight
but a dream of you
I wouldn't be here
right now trying to
understand the spaces
between faded lovers
now just far away friends...
if...and only if...

    I enjoyed reading this scripted waterfall of fragmented thought, cascading down, in suggestive REGRETfulness of past 'could've-'s + should've-'s'. Very thought provoking! Clever ending ('if...and only if...') ...which spurs speculation in the reader's mind of possible 'maybe's' being considered.

    Well written!
