I’ve been waiting for you to leave,
snagging my seams with you.
Anticipating the pulling of my flesh,
tearing strand by strand.
I have expected you to walk away,
leaving me a puddle –
liquid heart pulp;

A mass of velvety rose,
you walk through –
leaving footprints in the distance.
Crimson impressions,
where your figure once stood.
Trails lingering,
waving kisses good-bye –
never uttering the words.

The ruminating thoughts,
clustering my mind –
lingering the vision,
of when you disappear.
My eyes still glued on your back,
stuck to your shadow.
Soulish self sealed –
to the promise of the parallel.

    Such an amazing poem but it made me feel sad my lovely friend, I hope you are ok? I can relate to this, so many people have walked away and I have ripped myself to pieces trying to find what I had done wrong. Truth is I hadn’t and as I reflect on those thoughts now I can see that many times I rejected myself out of friendships/relationships because I didn’t want to feel the pain again. Such a deep poem, it really made me think.
    I love you so very much. Leesy. xxx {{{hugs}}} xxx

      I am so happy to see you here! Thank you, but I am sorry you felt sad. It was from a sad part of my heart. I am ok. Sometimes… well I do not really have the words so I will let the poem speak for itself.

      I was going to comment more about what you said, but I am feeling like my heart is a little fragile and I should not go there today. I know you know what I mean. 🙂 I do know what you are saying and I have done the same thing throughout the years. Yay! I made you think, I love that. Hee hee

      I love you so very much too!!

    And this is why I love you…your emotions are like a mirror of mine. I recently realized if I reblog I instantly tweet too…you get my reblog of the day, xo This emotion…stings like a thousand bees. Hugs to you love. And kisses too.

    • Angel says:

      Thank you Lady Day! (and for reblogging I appreciate that very much) I know your words tap some deep inner parts of me too, at times I swear you have been in my head!

      Yes, a thousand bees and add some more prickly thorns. 🙂 Gathering up the hugs and receiving the love! Woot, woot! Kisses. Hee hee I think I am a little silly today. :-/

    Angel this is a very powerful piece… can so feel the charge of emotion here. Sending Love your way xo

    • Angel says:

      Hi Robyn!
      Thank you! (And for the love, I am receiving it!) It is ironic, how many times with my poems, I do not comprehend the emotions until later. This one hit hard, but it is also healing. My heart does get stuck ruminating. 🙂

  5. Sending love to you, my friend. Beautiful piece (and beautiful art at the beginning too – is it yours?)

    • Angel says:

      Thank you Zen and Genki! Receiving the love. 🙂 No that is not my art – I do not normally share mine. I am too insecure about it! If you click on the image you will go to the artist.

  6. So great to see YOU on Lady Day’s blog. :))) Way to go. Love the heart of your work, as always. 🙂

    • Angel says:

      Thank you Sam! I so appreciate you stopping by. I always get a giddy smile seeing your happy face and reading your comments! 🙂

      • I love your heart and soul, and it is my pleasure to visit your creations. Us passionate, hopeless romantics need to stick together. Anytime you need to chat, feel free to message me on facebook. Much love to you.
        AlienHippy always speaks kindly of you and about how much she cares for you. So glad to know you. If there is ever a poem or post you really want me to see, please let me know. Hugs and bubbles of bubble gum flavored love. Sam 🙂
