Our Story

A Poem by C.C. Marx

Wow it's been a long time hasn't it? Excuse my rustiness, but inspiration struck. Young love is quite a doozy now isn't it?

I found a story in you
One told with entwined hands
And broken pieces
Capturing affection
In it's purest form
Only to be engulfed by
Disappointment and disbelief

One can't
Just simply describe you
An enigma, a puzzle
A self-proclaimed open book
Yet remaining under lock and key

Our pages have now run out
But the memories stay
Bounded between the covers
I'll always remember the feeling
Of your arms holding me close
But I also won't forget
The tears shed with you in mind

I could never erase you
God knows I've tried

You are welcome.
I like this. It is sweet and sentimental without being sappy or just plain corny. You hit the nail on the head. I have these same pages in my own history book...but we must put the book away and move on, because life will leave us in the dust, it doesn't stop to allow us time to get back on. We've just got to keep moving.
