Sunday

i was made to believe
that we are tethered
by a strand of twisted fibers.

me - on this end
you - on the other

and we pulled,
like the string of a handmade telephone toy,
when we needed each other.

you told me once
you'll never let go.

and i was a gossamer
and a see-though
and you saw through me
(how could you? honestly?)

then one day,
you decided to cut the other end.
and i saw the thread collapsed (and we)
and our story that has never started, ended.

but i still think of you sometimes.
and when i do, i smile.

  3. Wow, so pretty this poem.
    It has all gotten tangled up dear that's the problem. F is my friend (and I want him to remain just that) but it seems he doesn't and I'm in love with someone else to whom I confessed last year - and who avoided me after that. Now we're friends (?) and I'm too scared to make a move again.
    Thank you so much for youe support. You have no idea how much it means to me.

  8. Aww, I love the bittersweet and beautiful feel of this poem; it's very delicate. It's terribly hard to completely banish from our minds the memory of those who touched our hearts.

    I am well. :) Very tired, but that's easily amended.

    Ooh, I do like your new layout, haze! I hope you are doing well too. xxx

  9. That is an EPIC poem! You're a brilliant poet, Haze. More? Pretty please? :p

    This new blogger layout is so confusing me. Not the layout of your blog, but the whole new blogger interface. Gah! I wish they could change it back!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your bunnies!

    Wow, your dog must have been adorable! My neighbout was looking after a puppy that was pitbull/rottweiler/Dalmatian. She had the base rottie colouring, with little orange spots all over her. ADORABLE!

    Mmmmm, musicians are good with their hands ;)

    Love you so much, happy easter to you too!

  13. i've been here moonangel: an emotional, spiritual affair/tryst - ending before ever truly beginning, perhaps that's best for the
    memory is all the lovelier.

It feels like my heart has been bewitched by you and is keeping track of time on it's own.
