TONIGHT

TONIGHT

A Poem by Mirror

I came home
once again
I found myself all alone
Once again
I went to the kitchen
Pots, Knives, and Kettles
All in a mess


Even then my hunger abandoned me
Sinking my desires with me
I forced myself a bath
Unwillingly pull on my nightie
And moved to shut the door
Once on my bed without duvet
The cold i will endure tonight


The room dark and bled
With silence only Samson can break
Oh! with a soft sigh I realized
That that is not the only thing Samson can break
Yes, tonight
Yes, My heart
Yes, Samson, my sleep.

The poem can have some optimism in it . Like she could have known Samson isnt worth the pain in her or that she should leave the past behind and live a new one .
The story has a tint of frustation in it that i loved . I dont knkw about others but i felt that anger dwelling inside that girl .

It is strange, how little things can sometimes remind us a lot about the fond memories and the person who once meant the while world to us, when they leave!

'The room dark and bled
With silence only Samson can break'
...These lines are very strong, and made me actually feel the intensity big pain you may be going thru! Very well-crafted.

Attachment is easy and happens naturally.But the loss of a person hurts bad & is almost unavoidable for long, No matter how hard one tries to recover.
Things take time, but nothing remains the same forever. Never, never lose hope!

I wish you recover from this dark phase soon, dear Mirror.(((HUGS))))

Remember when you told me you don't want to be involved with drama or deal with me in any way? So what's up with leaving the follow comment on my work about 15 minutes ago? "@Debbie, please read his name. You are talking with a living corpse without home training and respect. Ignore him. he doesn't know anything... leave him to keep blabbing."

If you say you are going to do something, stick to it. You decide the level of interaction we have. Stay away from my poems and comments with your bullshit and you won't have to hear a single word from me.

My pleasure.
Why hit a point with a hammer...better to slowly push it in with the gentle weaving of a sewing pin?

This says so much in three short verses - and I felt each and every jab.

And thank you for the beautiful review.
Real, raw, relatable. I feel the bleakness, the loneliness, the heart-chill of your amazing poem. When love has gone...vivid ‘touchable’ imagery and words that come from the soul. Beautiful Mirror!

How sad! A cold shower might help. Or a naked man in bed would be better!

The kitchen in a mess. That paints the picture of abandonment. Nothing to get ready for. The bath goodnight. This is one painful write.
