Extended Vacation

Extended Vacation

A Poem by sivan

As ordinary becomes the stranger it seems packing our bags is the only option.

Perhaps a vacation is cure indeed!

Time was on our side but for a fleeting moment.

You were never sure of when the end would come

But grew to know it as inescapable.


Fear took over the mundane routine of things so that you watched your step

Instead of taking the lead.

Submission to the need to keep the peace �"

Time became an obstacle

Blocking the clear passage we had become accustomed to.

But custom holds threat to hindrance and the slightest moments’ pause

Can spark the end.


Parting was never meant to be an option but now it seems to be the last legal move.

At first inconceivable but the ball was set in motion

Without intention.

Irreversible stitching we cannot mend

We took the chance, we’re round the bend.

I can’t say I’ll love you forever

But I promise I will till the end.

"I can’t say I’ll love you forever
But I promise I will till the end."
Kind and sweet words are what we need like the words above. Love is rare and we need to hold on tightly when she is near. I like the description. Create beautiful places and thoughts. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

love is rare and i love unconditionally yet sometimes somehow love is not always enough
Such a bittersweet tale. When a seemingly forever relationship hits the rocks, it is never easy to ascertain exactly why. The only certainty is that it is very sad. Well written and powerfully emotive words. Lydi**

A poignant poem. The acceptance of the inevitability of a relationship sensitively portrayed
