Moving Apart - Poem by Seamus Hogan

Moving apart
As quietly as a puddle freezes,
Crying as silently as slush.
Ah, how long it seems
Since the first word was a kiss.

    oooh, i like this. very strong image...and i kinda know that feeling, where you know you're moving away from someone, and it makes your stomach turn to sludge, but you know there's nothing you can do about it...you've really captured that moment here. nice one! (Report) Reply

    a beautiful poem
    strong image
    deep feeling
    can feel the cold touch it taste it
    keep up the good work
