The Last Time

Posted: February 14, 2012 in Uncategorized

This poem was written because sometimes, love stories end before they are finished. To my husband.

Unleashed and reckless

Inhibitions dwindled

Today was for us

Our tomorrows had been swindled

*****

The clock was ticking

No rules to abide

The unwelcome visitor

Like a time bomb inside

******

We knew the danger

We knew the score

What lied close ahead

Behind the barricaded door

*****

Once he went under

To be rid of the thief

We knew not the outcome

Nor endless, subsequent grief

*****

We held on forever

Because that’s how we were

Our passions in sync

Our devotion so pure

******

To soon it had ended

The tears, how they rolled

The release had to last

Until all had been told

******

It is now just a memory

To be captured in rhyme

To be noted and filed

And labeled

The Last Time

******

    This sounds so sad, but my curiousty and my imagination wipe away the sadness and leave my mind racing with the possibilities . . . . .

    I am sorry for your pain and suffering.

    BIG HUG to you!

  2. This pretty much ripped my heart out. In a sad yet beautiful way.

    Maybe it is cryptic, but your metaphors leave me wanting to know more. Thank you for sharing pieces of your soul.
