Fading Footsteps - Poem by JenOfPoetry METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING

Grooved together for awhile

Everyday… sported a smile

Love was strong…that was the belief

Walking away from what was good

No explanation… maybe there was but the

Listening and understanding was zero

Can't let it go…

Following the sounds

Footsteps weaken

As they quickly fade away…

Leaving wandering thoughts

To roam alone…

Which way have they gone…

Identifying sounds of your footsteps

Gave comfort that you were near

Now all that is left are the echoes of footsteps

Vanishing with the wind…

The warmth of your body turned cold

The touch… spoke distance

The kiss… whispered farewell

All that is left are the footprints that use to be…

Memories of the many steps we took to get here…

Footsteps echo as love is lost

In translation…

Left in ignorance…

Words fail to combine to

Grasp the meaning of why…

There is open space in the heart

Open and vulnerable

Unable to cope with the

Missing pieces…

Footsteps echo goodbye

Only the familiarity of admiration

Can fill the void

Footsteps walk upon

The nature of the fallen soul

And disappears
