Maybe It was the Rain

Maybe It was the Rain

A Poem by Andrew Nelson Stewart
"

Love and much more what meets the eye when such an old world is said so many times.

"
Do we even count when everything is already said? 
Do we even dance when the song replays and already played 
back & forth in
 driving home? 
Do we even sing out loud the lyrics when the Idyllic nights become unbearable
What's there to paint when I see black and white anyway? 
You'd always drew our lives in pencil 
What's to wear on my cold sanctimonious finger
when you left me a moon-ring 
both realizing you took all the colors with you.

How to smile when it's heavy? 
Maybe pulling those demons out of your lungs,
those labored breaths
in the heaviness you feel.

How can I stop when the world continues to show? 
How to dream anymore when you feel like a stranger in your own? 
How to move on, when changes was just a blister
 that heals to wounds 
and later a scar to show?


What I'm supposed to do 
that life is just a life and nothing more?

In the ways through the summit where I find her name outside my door
These days I give names. 

Love is only a kiss that gives you a kiss goodbye. 
That lie you said "I love you" 
Just kiss me so you don't have to lie anymore.

as Sheryl Crowe sang "Lie to me, I promise I'll believe you"--

and as Elvis sang "I'd rather go on hearing your lies, than go on living without you"

but the leaving is so hard...I have had too many of these goodbyes...there is a time to heal...when
can that come unless the one who no longer loves us leaves.

very moving piece of poetry.

How to dream anymore when you feel like a stranger on your own.... Never heard much poetic line like this in desperation! The void that lingers when a loved one is not around is resonating in your words... And this is so deep and touchy. ... I am moved by this write

The poem, like music Andrew.
"Love is only a kiss that gives you a kiss goodbye.
That lie you said "I love you"
Just kiss me so you don't have to lie anymore."
I could write a epic poem from the lines above. The above lines. Great description of love dead-ends. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry. I did like this one.

What does it mean? That whatever was YOU has gone, what's left is pain, You carry on, oblivious yet aware; a strange surrender to non worth, to not feeling loved or wanted Knowing that if the truth were told you'd be alone.. Keep safe, my friend.

Ouch! This is a ache in poetry. Some thoughts can become all consuming that nothing else seems to shine.
The poem to me reflects lost joy. A deep sadness. A quiet desperation. Heart tugger for sure.

Brings to mind that Robert Frost line "natures green is gold" and "nothing gold can stay" so many outside influences to hamper the way, life and its many disappoints when idyllic love meets reality and that knot in your stomach just won't go away.

Absolutely true friend, you have to keep moving forward life makes it so.
Your words bring to mind the way we might listen to the same song over & over -- the first few times we're all revved up and into every word, but then the song slowly fades into an unnoticed background noise. This is how love can be for some. Some don't mind familiarity & are still engaged, even when love fades into background noise. Others get bored at the point of constant repetition, looking for fresh strokes, possibly a new situation . . . some don't think about breathing life into a love situation that's become routine (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Lost love is always unbearable but that is why poetry exists; to pour out all the loss and hopelessness on the page in order to pick ourselves up again and move forwards. In many respects it's the best form of therapy. Bare the soul in heartfelt words and heal thereafter. Your write and its theme is universally relatable. All goodbyes are followed by hello's. 💛

If poetry can be define in any way, I'll choose this definition of yours. Thanks again for reviewing.. read more
There are so many awesome lines here....we live in contradictions....we ache but don't show it...we tear up inside but put up a brave face, all because the world demands resilience. The conclusion is stunning. How devoid of hope the poet seems. Dreading the finale yet welcoming it as well so that the ordeal of uncertainty is done with. Appreciated very much!
