My Comet - Poem by Jay Pee Bryan

Like a comet, he raced into my life bringing
a wild spontaneity and unbridled romance that overtook
and indeed absorbed all else in my life.

In his eyes I saw a keen mind,
excited by the very idea of life and the potential it offered.
Someone with enough sheer exuberance to life those around him up above the haze of daily existence to a world of possibilities.

He made me laugh.
And I mean the real me, not the facade of a personality that I show to most.
He reached the true me, the inner me. The one who has felt so much pain and loneliness that carefree laughter had all but been forgotten.
But with him I learned to smile again.
And to find joy at simply being.

Then suddenly he was gone.

My comet streaked away, exiting my life even more rapidly then he entered it. Vanishing so quickly and with such finality that I now question
what exactly it was that we had together and why it ended so abruptly.

I am alone yet again.
Left isolated to sort out the mysteries.
What scared him away?
What did he have that held me captive like matter to gravity?

My queries go unanswered and my inner soul is once again enveloped
in a solitary darkness. But even in the darkness a small part of me will always shine, if only ever so slightly - the only trace left of his vitality and love.
