A Poem by bella


Someday I’ll call

And that day will be the coldest day of the year

Where I warm my hands with the stove

And I won’t be reminded of the day

I made you stay up all night

Just to watch the snow fall

From our big bay window

Snuggled under our red blanket

Someday I’ll call

And that day will be on a warm spring day

Where when I walk outside I don’t even feel the cool breeze

And I don’t even hear the birds chirp

And I won’t be reminded of the day

When we walked by the water

And you put your arm around me for the first time

And the butterflies haven’t stopped

Someday I’ll call

And that day will be so hot I feel heat in my lungs

A different fire than the flame you filled my lungs with

And I won’t be reminded of the day

When we went swimming

And I splashed you

And the way you looked at me, when the water cleared

Put sparkles back in my eyes

Someday I’ll call

And that day will be a cool autumn day

Where I have to bundle,

because you of all people know how cold I get

And I won’t grab your sweatshirt first

And I won’t be reminded of the day

Where I made pumpkin pie

And my grandmother taught you to knit

And I’ll call on this day

Because I’ll hear your voice and I won’t cry

I’ll hear your soft tongue roll in every ‘r’

And I won’t melt

I’ll hear your amazing silence

And I won’t wait on your every breath

I’ll apologize without begging

I’ll never beg unapologetically again

I hope I make this call soon

This is very beautiful & well-crafted! I love the opening line to each stanza, which is so pregnant with longing & hesitation, exactly the way I feel when I'm wishing I had the courage to pick up the phone. I love the way you structure this message around the seasons & temperatures, filling each stanza with tons of vivid detail to bring on the nostalgia. The ending is exactly the way I feel all the time. It's the reason people never stay in touch, always waiting & wondering. Your poem drives home the ridiculousness of doing this, but still not having the courage to overcome the hesitancy & fear (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

this brought me back to so many memories of my own, you brought back the images and odours wrapped in nostalgia...and with that, the heartbreaking but also freeing pain of lost loves....beautiful poem.

Where Suns cant hide and Stars hang high, a Silver lake and onyx skies. oh but how beautiful it could be. It is a thing of passion, and the past has no place in it. Nothing will stop the way you will feel from now on, but nothing will harm it.

Thank you!
this is amazing!! I am so glad that this as a way to recover, I do the same thing with my writing, I have a suggestion for the ending. the end is kind of unfitting for the whole piece, the very last line I would do some tweaking to, but besides that, keep up the great work!
