Had I Known

Had I Known

A Poem by Tania

 It looked like light was 

driven away from its very presence,

when I lost touch of my heart beat.

The waves ,

whirled around its own sound .

The clouds effortlessly danced 

 ,for the sound of life  enlightened the sky.

Where was I all this time?

when the music was playing.

If only I had known …

Knowing ,

that all of  who I am today 

might perish its way out.

That I will be in utter silence ,

facing the sound of  nothingness.

Oh, how would have I embraced

 the loudness of nature making its 

way through the night , 

the sound of existence running 

through my mind .

If only I had known ...

Slowly ,

one falls in love with the world.

The way it closes its eyes at night 

showing us what it hides inside.

A little spark of life 

with souls meeting the eyes ,

of those who watch the night sky 

become the day of light.

My very footsteps have been marked 

on this  land ,

the ashes are trails to what once existed.

Like the words I've once whispered,

the pain I once endured,

the laughter that I once questioned,

for it had a  marvelous way of captivating beauty .

Had I known , 

that one day I will vanish .

I will become a mere memory 

written in the mind of someone .

Someone that will  remember me 

by the movement of his thoughts 

reaching the past.

The past ,

which I existed in .

Which without , 

we wouldn't  have 

the smallest ability 

to move on.

My very essence ,

will swim infinitely into finding another home.

For now ,

the one I lived in 

has said goodbye to me.

Thank-you Robert, I am glad you enjoyed it :)
Thank you for sharing your poetry. I found this poem full of melancholy. a few verses ere a bit confusing to me, but overall a good poem. My favorite stanza; particularly this verse:

Slowly ,
one falls in love with the world.
The way it closes its eyes at night
showing us what it hides inside...

the metaphorical meaning implied here is fantastic to me. It reminds me of dreaming and waking up with a new sense of things... feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world in a new light. Really nice job here.

Keep honing the craft. :)

Peace, Todd
