You & I - Poem by Fabrizio Frosini

Making the best of what we had
Was our first deal. Pity it was not
Enough. Just a
Pre-destined route.

Our place is now deserted. Wretched
Like an unfinished song. It's the same
For both of us.

Whom do you belong to?
And I? You and I were together
At the beginning, when that
Song began. Will we be
Together at its end?

If not, there will always be
The memory;
Inextinguishable maybe
As long as we're alive —You
And/or I

And nothing else.

    If it was felt deeply, it remains sharply in the mind...
    sometimes dangling on fading hope,
    sometimes with resignation bruising.

    Exquisitely crafted poem Fabrizio.

    Ciao, 'leggiadra Gazzella' - charming Ghazal :)
    Thank you for reading and commenting on my 'You.&.I'
    I've read the seven poems you've posted here till this very moment: as I wrote, I'm on the same ''wavelength'' as Tom - but I already knew that you're a very good poet: a poetess whose poetry honors our anthologies!

    Διακρινω μια μελαγχολία σε ένα ουδέτερο πια από συναισθήματα τοπίο. Η ώρα του αποχωρισμού έχει την οδύνη της έλλειψης των έντονων συναισθημάτων αρκετά οδυνηρό κι ας καλύπτεται στην ποίηση σας.Ευχαριστώ. (Report) Reply

    When you feel intimate romance, however you don't know how to state the enchantment words let verse help! These affection ballads for him and her, are the ideal method to state I adore you. (Report) Reply

    How strange
    I could cut open a brain
    look into hippocampus
    pituitary, amygdala
    frontal lobe, hypothalamus
    optic and auditory nerves
    name any nook any gyration
    I could dissect all
    but I could not detect
    your lies when you said
    you dearly loved me

    you left me
    without a trace
    my house is deserted now
    where there were roses in vases
    swarms of mosquitoes fly

    we loved Mozart and Ribaldi
    now when I come home
    I see our poodle sniffing
    your slippers, circling the bed
    and wondering why are you not here
    he runs to me and howls

    I loved you dearly, honestly, sincerely
    I do not know where I went wrong
    be happy with your new lover
    forget me, my life will move along
    your memories will remain with me

    Had read this lovely poem quiet some time back. Love really is a complex emotion. Even in separation it is there with many sided memories.like splinters on porcupine's back we carry it all. (Report) Reply

    Whom do you belong to? - And I? You and I were together - when that - Song began
    i love these lines.
