You Forgot What Love Meant - Poem by Anna Malmenlid

Those three words
you used whispers up
in the winter darkness
where we sat
together
so close

Warm hands used to
creep tentatively forward
until they found my

Together we sat
and remembered
each word
and touch

But somewhere along the way
you gradually forgot
the word love

Now I sit alone
in the winter darkness
where the tears
freeze
trying to remember
what it was like to be loved

    So true. I can picture you sitting on a porch in a pooring rain, with an empty chair that once rocked next to you. Love is most of life, and I enjoyed reaading the poem, reguardless of the heart break, thanks for sharing your thoughts from the heart (Report) Reply
