Locked

Our eyes freeze
above her head
your mouth voices
empty words
safe verbal waste
Those blue eyes
scream memory
of intimate breath
and in slow seconds
our nurtured lies
fled

(I miss you...
crashes into air
thick between us)

Impressions of you:
your face
your stance
your stun
as I breathe near you
My rescuing smile
holds the heart scream
before you hear it

Shadow brief;
your passing sun
You're lost
in a cruel swirl
of faces
A freshened memory
lonely echo
a flicker of you

And:
I'm locked
missing you

I can fully imagine this happening to me. I would be a total wreck! Nice visualization and word choice!

This really moved me - I've written a similar poem for a similar situation, and I too, froze. Thanks for your input on my poem "sail away...or not." God knows we'd be SICK of ourselves & eachother if we were happy all the time!! I feel 99% of my strength has come from my "not so thrilling" experiences....your comments mean alot to me - I'm a fan of your work.

Thankyou so much, poetFemmeFatale. In my not-very-happy times writing poetry (and prose) has saved me from completely collapsing. I admit I don't write the cheeriest stuff in the world - although recently life's been cool so some of my work is slightly happier! I like your work a lot too and want to read more! ( I just don't get a lot of time on the net, but I'll be searching for your poems when I'm on-line.
