Aftermath Poem by Jeremy Horsford


Rating: 5.0

I use you stare at you for days on end.

We use to talk about everything and
nothing. I can still hear your voice,
but your words are silent. Your unspoken
words, by a non-existent mouth haunt me

You pierced my heart and mortalised my
soul...Death in it's totality is now an
inconceivable possibility.

Why did you leave? I know it is not my
fault, but my heart breaks before I awake
and after I fall asleep.

The profiteers from tears, have left me
unable to manage the pain and the thought
of our disagreements, no longer bears

So where to from here...? Feeling I took
our time for granted?

A haunting piece, Jeremy. Time eventually fades such things but the hurt never full disappears

Only if what you said wasn't true. The above relates to a challenging experience sixteen years ago and the sad thing is...despite moving on, I can remember it all too well.

Hopefully I haven't opened old wounds, but a door to your subconscious.
