Before you go...

Before you go...

A Poem by Azure Montessa (Blue)

Before you go...

...look at me in the eyes
like when we first met.
...hold me in your arms
in a way I'll never forget.
...intertwine our hands
just like last Valentine.
...kiss my lips
as if you're forever mine.

Before you go...

...think of me
and how I dearly love you.
...remember us
and all that we've been through.
...rewind everything
from beginning until today.
...pause the moment
you promised me you'd stay.

Before you go...

...bring with you
the picture of my face.
...look at it
when you're lost in a maze.
...travel far and wide
but 'home' you will never see.
...know, please know
you can always come back to me.

This poem has an excellent unravelling story. I feel desperation for the speaker to have her speaker never forget her, and a desperation for the way things were before. I agree with your friend that relationships are never "forever" but the memories certainly are.

Thank you so much, Annie!
Indeed goodbyes are always painful.

I remember a friend who criticized me for using the word "forever" in my article. To him, nothing lasts forever. We do have a healthy argument. In the end, I surrendered. Why not? I have been a patron of that word for so long...because I don't want to lose hope for something. But the reality keeps on showing before my face- nothing lasts forever. So goodbyes are only part of our lives. After those sweet "hellos", expect the sad "goodbyes"...because nothing is really permanent here on earth. Even people change.
We cannot hold all things forever in our arms. People come and go and we should learn to accept that.

I'm telling you this because I have been there several times. Now, I'm getting ready to face another parting...to hear another goodbye.

This is life, Blue. So I have learned to enjoy every moment when I'm with the things I like and those people I love. Dance while the music is playing.


This is bittersweet. You always make something exceptional.

I can see you're good heart in this piece, the way I see myself in my past. I have told you we have some things in common and called you my sister here. But I know you're also a dreamer, and I'm just happy to see you explore the new world you just have discovered. You are talented and I know you can reach your goals.

I'm just here, a message away. You know where you can reach me.

Thank you so much, Ate! You always amaze me with the way you elaborate your insights. ;)
Painfully expressed, but at the same time simple and honest, even though a degree of bitterness and perhaps even slight anger could be detected in the lines. It is certainly what anyone going through this would feel, and I think the last line is the saddest, as it shows that even after having her heart ripped out, she'd welcome him back.

Thank you so much, Eddie. A pleasure to read your review always.
A pining and loving tone in this one. But also a tinge of hurt and even anger? Strange when someone else chooses our fate just how awful it feels.
