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

I do understand this poem. I believe we need final end. Eye to eye and voice to voice. Last place and words needed. I liked the flow of thoughts leading to proper ending. Thank you Bella for sharing the amazing poetry.

I like it. As a therapeutic piece I think it's building to a moment that may or may not happen, but the therapy is also in the writing; the attempt to prepare. Thanks.

I like it. Only minor quibbles, like dumping the word "even" from S2, because it adds nothing.

I'd also rethink "I’ll never beg unapologetically again." Given the reader doesn't know why the split occurred and why begging didn't work, they may well bog down on "unapologetically." You might think of telling why, and why not begging might work.
