A Soulful Goodbye
Poem by Christopher Cariad
Just a silhouette of your soul
That kiss was
I cherished every move your lips made.
We shared that kiss
in a dark alley
filed with rats
navigating for scraps.
The smell of rotten shellfish
from the restaurant next to us,
didn't stop us from falling in this
lavish whirlwind of love.
The lust we shared in that moment
could feed a million of the worlds starving.
Selfishly we consumed every ounce
and lived in a magical wonderland,
every second we where given together.
The heavens regrettably called
with that bullet to the head of you… my husband.
Life was so cruel to allow such a
world to depart from me.
And on this day,
How the heavens knew,
how they could be so blunt with this dagger.
Disbanding the last of these heart strings.
Back in this alley I stand.
Thinking of that beginning,
holding your face to mine.
Now just a silhouette of your soul remains.
A love like this could never stand.
The heavens knew, My pain is something strong.
That through my sadness,
I would build.
A memory of this world,
A world of this memory.
