A Walk

  • It is a new year and I can't wait to read all my friends new poetry.

A Walk

So often we walked
    together
so many places
frozen by the cold
drenced by the rain
burrowing our cheeks
the sun cuddling us
like a quilt
around ageless
    passion.

So many changes
   began
holding your hand-
touching renewing me
pretending it held
fragile security
   protecting
me from pain.

It really couldn't.

You are gone now
I walk alone with
   pain
trying to
hold your hand.

Remembrance is an after image that grows stronger with time. The physics don't quite work out, but that's because the process is far above it. Good to see you back!

The touch of a held hand tight can surely leave fingerprints on the heart... thank you for sharing in such a unique and beautiful way!

Thank you for your comments. Sally

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
