About the Poem
This poem was written sort of as a "Part 2" to one of my other poems.
It's about a long lost love, recalling the sweet, but still painful, memories made in our time together; the haunting thought that someday, some way we may meet again and what will happen then? Will I finally be at peace with myself, or in more turmoil than ever before?
I was trying to portray bottled- up emotions in a poem, and this was the result.
Seeds Of Despair
|At one point, I loved you more than anything
You were my sunshine after the rain;
But with you went my only light,
And I felt nothing but pain.
It's been quite a few years since then,
I've rebuilt my heart and put your memory to rest.
But even after moving on in life,
I can't lift this heavy weight off my chest.
A part of my past is an open book,
Whose pages have gone unread.
That part is you, not a big surprise,
And I can't let go of the last thread.
You haunt me in my dreams at night,
And you plague my every thought.
How do you expect me to let go,
When I don't even know if you're alive or not?
If only I could see you one more time,
Just to know you're ok and doing fine.
That would help me so very much,
And bring some peace to this heart of mine.
