A Week Or Two - Poem by Leria Hawkins

A Week Or Two
Date: January 28,2016

How long's it been…a week or two?
Not long enough to shake the blues
I stumble on…pen in hand
Rewriting all my wishful plans

It seems like only yesterday
In love with all the dreams I'd made
It's funny how the winds can change
To turn it all from sincere to strange

Whispers, kisses, a fiery touch
From unwanted lips don't mean as much
The flames that seared me, through and through
Feel like a stranger, I only thought I knew

But, I must admit, it pains my heart
The wasted years, trapped in the dark
While all the passion, all the fire
Were figments of my own desire

I guess it's just my needy heart
Creating fire from pseudo sparks
And whispers, really just the wind
A siren song, of my pretend

It seems so long, a week or two
Accepting the truth of me and you
Trying to turn from all we've been
While fire still rages beneath my skin

I've lived so long on borrowed time
Spending someone else's dime
I guess the flames, the tempting hues
Just served to obscure my point of view

Like a stretch of sand, I'll never reach
On some foreign shore, deserted beach
The distance paints my heartache blue
Seems, love don't fade…in a week or two
