Secrets




i wish i knew what to say,
or rather,
how to say it…
i wish these long drawn-out
silences
were a little less one-sided

i wish it took less dramatic measures
to make a good-bye stick
to return things as they should have
always been

but, return,
could it ever?
be what we had before?
i wish i knew what that was…
was there ever a moment
when we were not an us?
it’s hard to recall

if either of us could peer
beyond the walls of forgiveness
we’d see the shattered
spirits
of our dying love unfold

fore when i find the words
we will finally know…
how deep the wounds of deceit
shall go

i wish we could have been more honest
especially with ourselves
fore if the words should never come
the truth shall still be known

regardless of the outcome,
i hope deep down you know…

i will always miss you
and what we had before

  1. To miss...something like this, is better to have not known it. I know there are those that would argue. They would therorize that in not knowing, there is nothing to miss. But I disagree. There is missing...a vacant void with no face. There is missing...a thing you held to, the imprint still recognizable in your palm. I prefer the later. I may be the only one.

  3. Enjoyed this very much. The untruths when discovered and the experiences portrayed. So much to relive over and over, and remember eventually less, when in a better place.

  22. The silence since you posted this is very loud!

    A very wise woman once told me
    that nothing ever changes
    unless change starts within one's self.
    I hope you are doing fine,
    taking care of yourself.

  24. @ Hello Kay....

    Even if Atlas shrugged, the world will go on....

    Been missing you since quite a while!
