Sitting on the steps

Sitting on the steps

A Poem by Johnson Bobby
"

Holding onto a lost love

"
Do not ask me where my love lyes
All my colors are grey, my mistakes
Are broken dates, that are unrefundable

My skin is cold as ice and fragile, My lips
speak in segments and chapter's
All about you, all about you, 

Love is expensive costly and brutal and fatal,
there are other sorrows in the world other than
love, hard to take another chance though, 

Once there was a time when life was bright and Young
and blooming, though now I know that it Was not reality, 
not eternity

I still hurt

The marble steps are are so cold and lonely the moon is
watching, watching me,

(Back)

Leading me his friendship, Another sade song playing another
Sad memory, another sad memory, haunts me with each and
 cloud that passes, real slowly, 

(I cover my ears, my ears, my ears)

The crickets creaking and creaking and creaking is driving me
crazy, driving me crazy, 

(Please, please, please)

Quiet, quite, quite, 

Just another sleepless night, another sleepless night, 
I can't go back inside yet

Am I dreaming? Am I dreaming? Yes no no yes, 

The s**t hurts so bad, that it has gotta to be real the Way
I feel, 

I hear your footsteps sometimes even though you're gone, 
I still hear your laughter from the bedroom, 

The bedroom light, the bedroom light, sometimes sometimes
 I question myself weather or not, If I left it on, 

One last cry, one last tear, falls to the cold, cold marble( Steps)

I don't want to go back inside yet, 

Sometimes I think I hear the floors creaking and creaking, dishes
Clanging the shower going, humming and singing, 

But it's just another sleepless night, so I keep playing sade over
and over and over again, 

(Cold)

Another November is coming coming but since you've went to heaven, 
I still haven't moved on quite yet! in my heart, 

I can't go back into the house yet! 

Not quite yet!

Sometimes I still recite my hand written wedding vowels, deep in my mind, 

I still carry on as if I'm standing before You Once again in a dream, 

Stairing into your eyes, your smile your smile your partially Opened lips, 
With every breath you take I loose my composers to the moment, 

I remember the over zealous waiting and wanting the longing longing to
remove your wedding Vail, 

(And kiss you)

(So cold now)

The temperature is dropping and dropping the marble steps are cold cold, 
down to nearly zero

(Another long)

midnight is approaching, But I'm going to sit for a little while longer, 
at least until I catch my breath! 

Because I can't go back inside yet!

Sounds like a sad love song, it's a bit long for my preference but I know that I've gotten carried away as such, sometimes our thoughts and emotions just keep coming. Gray is never a pretty color when it comes to love...

I don't think you meant 'lye' unless you were percolating. :)
Do not ask me where my love 'lies'

Johnson,
I could feel the pain in your in poem about love loss. Anyone who has experienced this type of pain can relate to your writing. Much time spent longing and dreaming of lost whispers and kisses on porch steps. Nice job.

Wow, this is lovely, touching, metaphorical and vivid.. The style- so different and enjoyable- makes it a beautiful song..
