A Day Or Two - Poem by Leria Hawkins
A Day Or Two
Date: January 13,2016
The lights have gone down, the curtain closed
The stage is set for another show
Oh, how I miss the fire, of whispered lines
They never warned me of our love's demise
It's such a waste, so many years
Our passions stifled by our fears
I remember when we burned so bright
Never dreamt that fate would snuff the light
I guess this is how it's supposed to be
It's you with you, and me with me
But, I never thought we'd end this way
Nothing left to hold, but yesterdays
The miles between us, so close, yet far
Like a roadmap drawn in our scars
I've faced the facts, what's done is done
But my heart still feels so cold and numb
What comes next, only time will tell
Will it stop this spinning carousel?
Where I struggle at night in barren dreams
I wake still broken by silent screams
Memories haunt my nights and days
I can't rise above this muddled haze
We started what was doomed to end
We made a mess we couldn't mend
While all the truths, I've longed to know
Were buried where they wouldn't show
Instead you besieged my heart with fire
Blinding me by my own desires
Can you end our song with honesty?
When you held my heart, what did you see?
Did you ever feel the way I do?
Did you love at least a day or two?
