A Poem by Glen's not so clean slate
"

a little bit morbid but I just wrote as it came to me. I enjoy looking at the good things in life

"
Where dreams and reality converge
When present and past must duly merge
Somewhere between
eternity and never
I choose thy latter
My cup of teas begun
to cool
Yes baby, you colored me
Colored me a fool
So I will stroke myself kindly
"You did your best old friend. . ."
As the purple rain
beats down upon my
Messy Hair
Look to the purple sky again, would I so dare?
No
I will not
I wish to sit here
And duly rot.

Glen's not so clean slate,
Well now your know where you stand and do not need to stay mired in the past: "Yes baby, you colored me
Colored me a fool"
I know that you will not just: .....wish to sit here and duly rot."
Nope, not you.
A courageous poem.
Blessings,
Kathy

Ain't a story of love in the poetry. Strong thoughts led the reader to logical ending. Sometime we can't win. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Yes, we are all allowed the occasional pity-party. And to console yourself knowing you "did your best old friend"? That's good mental health. Kudos for fully acknowledging yourself: your best and your rot.

Thanking Ye ;)
when our relationships fail....there are times we feel we just don't want to move on and be happy with anyone....we give up on the idea of passion and love....and long only for grey skies and tears to drowned in.

Ahhhh, the thorns of lost love still make us bleed..i feel your pain and "purple rain" of melancholy and bitterness. Great wordage, free-style form, flow and rhyme. "Somewhere between eternity and never"-stunning line. Great "Messy Hair" imagery. Drink your tea before it cools friend Glen- and then out in the sun-no rot for you! Great poem. Kudos!
