Longitude

A Poem by Amy D. Brooks

I put your wick to my flame,

We were the children of fermented grain.

Missing buttons and side-swept hair,

I abandoned myself in your stare.

Recalls planted in shattered mirrors,

It was you who grew all of my fears.


A thousand pieces fell from each eye,

Following your deaf goodbye.

Blooming a life founded in sickened darkness,

The mortal puzzle of a silent songstress.

Slowly churning regret-spawning spindles,

Silk shaded all of my windows.

 

Now nothing fits anywhere anymore,

I wish I was how I was before.

Someday you’ll be sorry and someday I’ll forgive you,

Because I loved you once, and that’s what lovers do.

I really enjoyed reading this! I absolutely love the way you detail this poem, like here "A thousand pieces fell from each eye,

Following your deaf goodbye." Simply genius my fellow poet. Keep up the writes!

A great poem and eloquently written forgiveness is hard to do much harder than revenge! Well done!

Amazing content with wonderful lines.
I attempted to isolate few to specially brand as my favorites.
But,all were so lovely that all went in vain.

Love lost on the way but hopes to find solace back again in the open arms of the jilted partner.
Compassionate understanding and unconditional forgiveness is all there to fathom and give.. the poet says..
and when he went away without even turning back.....the world crumpled on her weary shoulders....but she stood strong and is now a determined woman...'
a fantastic lover of a strayed human.
