'And If ...

'And If ...

A Poem by Alisa Js

and if you leave 
you'll forever be
frozen in rhyme 
and memories, should we deflect
a reflection still

a space where we perceived 
of all things yet to be

something skipped
missed a beat 
and suddenly without a clue
the days were long and nights beyond
anything we could see

seasons changed, some remained
while others slipped silently into the breeze
never again to be seen 

and I wonder now
about the how and why's

remembering the times you cared...

You are right dear Alisa.
"seasons changed, some remained
while others slipped silently into the breeze
never again to be seen "
The above lines. Solid and true. Love teaches us. Be careful who we share our heart with. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

You are welcome dear Alisa and have fun/be careful.
I love how this starts. It gives a sense to the reader of peeking in mid-flow on a barge of sailing thoughts - it engenders such empathy and also makes us think of our own relationships that were and could have been. It makes us feel that bittersweet wistfulness and want to hug the speaker.
Thanks for reviewing my work Alisa. I was away for a while - so, expect me ...lol

Living in those moments of happiness and harmony; how we to know what future outcomes are to befall upon us! If bad times arrive – our memories turn from sweet to sour! Great poetic and poignantly penned piece of emotional prose – sad, but very expressive work … :-)
