A Poem by Ayisha Upshaw


Where did you go, my love?
It's been so long since I've seen your smile.
Since you've waltzed around the room
Humming melodies that'd never make it to words.

We were so close, my love;
I don't know how I lost you.
I kept you tucked away
Where nobody could harm you

But I've failed you, my love.
I'm afraid that I've failed you.

The weeds began to whisper
Now the wind sings songs of the dreams you left behind
Knowing you'll follow every note.
Knowing you have trouble letting go.
But only your absence could call for sacrifice.
Could cause leaves to leap from their branches
And give their lives to get me back to you.

Youme, my love.
Could you be my love>
You... Me;
My love.

Author's Note

Ayisha Upshaw
Poem is based on losing your innocence.. your sense of self.
It's about trying to find yourself again, realizing that the love you've been chasing is the one you forgot to give yourself.

Ayisha - We will be sad when love is lost but also we can be happy that it happened, implying that sometimes Love will make you lose "a way" so that you can find "your way". Intriguing write and I enjoyed your word craft. Namyh
