Years, weeks, days
Hours, minutes, seconds
A lifetime spent
Waiting,
Words on a page
A time, a place, a family
Strangers to the mind

Love, loss, promise
A tragic story,
I linger on your words
Searching for answers
Greeted by ambivalence

Word, syllable, breath
Your last,
Seems too soon
A presence just discovered
Alone again

Ink, paper, images
Once yours,
Now mine,
Proof of what I lost
Evidence of undying love?

As I sit,
Emotions elude me
Voice fails me
Body shakes
Tears flow
Wondering what it all means

This is VERY well written and expressed.
this is an emotion filled piece...
and makes a very nice first impression.
I look forward to more of your work.
I like this style of poetry.
WELCOME to passions...nice to meet you!

I know it's been a long road
To get these towns behind me and I
Will gladly reap what we may sow--
I am there for you ...
and you're there for me ...
Are you waiting for
Heart in hand
Woman and man
See me where I stand I am
Heart
Heart in hand

Hello jkm1

Welcome to Passions, I enjoyed the read.


BTW- Are there lots of students in Ithaca that can write like this?  


 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.
