Not for Sale

Not for Sale

A Poem by AprilRN1210


 


 


“Get in where you fit in”

---another ‘dime a dozen’

what once was now begins

to show just what it wasn’t.


 


Distant dreams…and fairytales

with every lie you told

…..dissipate inside this jail

explaining truths you never sold.


 


O N E lonely buyer…trapped

kept in this empty cage

slapped with every tear I’ve wept

upon this… fractured page.  


 


Flames fading before they ever were

in a fire… that will never be

proving the passion your lips once swore

to be nothing more than make believe.


 


Melodies of primal pain

now play within my mind

ravaging with each refrain

on a track I can’t rewind.


 


I’ve learned to live behind these walls

reined by demons of doubt

they keep me from further falls

and fortify this house.


 


Who knows what the future holds

for this lost and weary soul

but my dreams and loving heart

---- can’t be bought or sold.

Wonderful. Such a softly spoken piece (in my mind anyway) that slowly lifts into wonderful last verse that captures the moment perfectly, of knowing those words once heard, now sound hollow and empty.
Thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed it.

My dear friend.
I Am torn by This poem.
For one.... because it has been so long since I have enjoyed your writing and wit.
And the other ....is the content of your words here.

Im happy to see you writing .... but sad at the meaning in your poem.

Hope writing about the pain.. and having friends to console and encourage is just what the doctor ordered.
If not.... let me know how I can help.

So good ton see you my dear friend.

HUGGS. ... TRACE.

APRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLL!! Yahoooo Yahoooooooo Yahoooooooooooo! can i say its good to see you? ;) this turn:
"what once was now begins" i think is brilliant! this age old story refreshes in my own heart .. a good thing ... keeps one empathetic and humbled (or broken) ... i am so sorry you had this terrible betrayal in your life .. you are vibrant, smart ..very smart .. with your nurses compassion .. this tragedy and deep pain will give you far more than he took .. i can tell you this is true .. tho there is little comfort to be found in my words now ..you will remember them some day :) that fifth verse is a killer .. and the fine determination in your closing makes me cheer! love and peace dear friend!
E.
and a big warm hug!

Been a while since I saw you post a poem, and damn you come out blazing with emotional fire.
Our emotions and bodies are not to be a possession for someone, rather a gift we appreciate.
