A Thousand Miles Behind Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell

A Thousand Miles Behind

Rating: 5.0

I saw in you the best of me,
twin souls united set aflame.
I loved too much and could not see
that you and I were not the same

I had high hopes in all the good.
The scented roses filled my head;
and though I loved, you never could.
The perfumed petals faded - dead.

The ashes whisper of my loss.
Teardrops glisten on guitar strings.
Love is at once a curse and cross
and foolishly endures all things.

I walk my way towards the light.
A peaceful silence fills my mind.
The past is past; the future bright.
You are a thousand miles behind.
