RIDING HOME FROM CHARMING

 

By Lucien Maier

Edited By Temperance Penrod



I watched with the rest of you.

I rode into Charming,

I knew quickly that I never wanted to leave.

I also knew from the start, that one day, I would have too.

 

We all knew it was coming, but that did not make easier.

We all counted down the moments, but it did not make it easier.

We all watched our favorites go, in one way or another.

We all knew it was coming, but it does not hurt any less.

 

The loose ends quickly tied,

Time accelerated as the end neared.

My heart pleaded

Please drag your heels,

Don’t go so quickly into the dark good night.

But destiny had its path.

My heart wept when the night took over,

And the reaper took the screen.

 

I woke this morning from my restless sleep,

With peace.

I see the turmoil my fellow fans are in,

Hearts broken over the path the pen took.

But I have peace.

 

You see my friends, I have been here before.

When I finished my fourth book,

I was faced with ending a legacy.

 

I really feel that Sutter’s pen, like mine

Just wrote the truth,

Jax set the road straight.

The story was at its end.

 

There are parts of any story that I am not fond.

But that is the way of any story,

We rode many miles with SAMCRO

I will miss all of them.

 

I hope I can use the lessons I learned,

From Clay about mistakes of the past,

From Opie about honor,

From Tara, about choosing a path

From Bobby, about loyalty

From Gemma, about lies

From Chibbs, about moving on

And from Jax, about not offering excuses.

About looking into the future and setting the path.

About grasping the things you can control.

About letting go of the things you can’t.

About being a king.

 

Some may be disappointed at the end.

But I am not,

I rode home from Charming last night.

I will miss it there, but I am glad I went.

Followed the link over and read the rest...I'm not familiar with the show, but one doesn't have to be to appreciate this poem. I think this theme is appropriate for any loss. Well done, Lucien!

I did notice that in the fourth line you have "too" where it should be "to."

This perfectly describes my feelings about the end of the show and I must admit my relief in not being the only one, haha. Very well done.

Couple of errors with grammar and spelling, but they're simple. If I'm honest, this didn't truly catch my attention, but it was a nice piece all the same :)

I liked it. Attachment to places is an interesting concept and your poem does a good job and creating the feeling of missing someplace important to us through careful pacing and word choices. Well done.
