Legends Of Me - Poem by Jennie Renee Sparrow

I was removed from what I am
The fire that once burned is stripped
Reluctant to complete from where I began
When my only flame has been raped

My soul is laid to rest and now buried
I had finally found my final escape
Through its innocence and guilt has varied
Never thought it would be so late

By the time it took you to know
Who I was on the inside
You finally saw me and my glow
The one I never meant to hide

It seems familiar of the sound
When the first moments came
As I was lowered into the ground
Then it suddenly began to rain

Just like I had imagined in a dream
With that strange look upon your face
You were there wondering what it means
Why I did life disappear and replace

You remain to be disappointed again
I lean over and give you a kiss on the cheek
For a long time you were my friend
My lips touch upon your skin left you weak

Salty tears rained from your eyes
But you were no longer there anymore
Your world was fading and so were your cries
I felt myself slipping further away evermore

My book has been placed upon the shelf
The last pages of my story have been read
You knew better than I even knew myself
I leave you now with the words you said

I remember when you had told me
That I would never be unknown
Now I know that everyone sees
Who I was now that I am shown

The secrets of my legacy have spoken
To tell the stories that I never would
My legends will live as they awaken
Told in such ways that I never could

But I always knew that we were true
The tears of our reality never once cried
All I ever wanted in my life was to be with you
Now our legacy tells that the true love in our beauty never died
