Calmly I embraced my excitement. For I could not wait to see you. I was thrilled. Scared. In love all at once. What felt like eons, Was just a day. Is this true? Is the the pure love We all seek? Engaging yet distant, You smiled. You were overjoyed, But reserved. Neither of us quite knew, Forever was upon us.
A short one. A long one. Does it matter how many words? When a tree falls, Is it heard? It's not the quantity Of syllables. It's the value In the meaning. Just write your soul.
Words cannot express the emotion with which I feel. Tirelessly considering, the joy of childhood. The love of parents so happy for me. A coffee sits. Begging to be sipped. While I stare at our old oak tree. The yard as square and cut as dad kept it all those years. Mom's aged cook book, a family classic on the shelf. Stares at me through dusty binding. Years have passed. Alone I tend to my history. The coffee is getting cold.
How do I tell you. Feelings. Ufettered. The wreckage of a soul. Eternal love. Undying. How do I tell you. When I see. When our hearts speak again. Memories. Those little moments. Infinite. Pure. The thing we all seek. It was you. It's always been us. How do I tell you. Tell me. Please.
Remember that time? No connection, just a phone on the wall. With a cord. Played with toys. Used our hands. A ball. A tweet came from a bird. Your face buried in a book. A simple time. Or maybe we just didn't want to know.
In one, moment,
a change in all life.
Like a star gone supernova,
I cannot help but feel,
sense, agonized over you.
What I did, I will never know.
What we were is now gone.
A love once so strong, evaporated.
I cannot love anymore.
Numb, immune to the feeling.
It was all with you.
Gone, empty like a black hole.
Nothing will ever be the same.
