Candles Burn

Candles Burn

A Poem by Eve
"

reflection on friendships

"
I remember that call, the sun art settee, 
you were worried that it wouldn't fit
in the rv, and called to ask me
if you should buy it.
I miss calls like that.
I still remember what I told
you;
"If you love it, it will fit"
and of course it did,
'cause i'm always right,
(but we know i'm not and 
I doubt I'll change much)
People are like that too,
if you love them,
you find a spot in your veins
to permently implant them
They never really leave you.
I know why the candles burn
but only one was gone then,
that was such a cruel, lean April.
They are both gone now,
they say that all dogs
go to heaven,
so they are together,
and he's not alone.
I rarely have regrets,
but I regret not ever
meeting either, 
and I hurt for you,
then and now 
as if you are my own.
I should have told you...
that I was sorry,
so many people
come and go 
in our lives,
you would think
I'd learn not to take
them so for granted.
I'm sorry that I can't 
take it back,
or ever make it right,
for you, and maybe
it doesn't matter to you now
but I think you should know
the best eight years
of my life,
was as your friend.
In that respect, have no regrets, 
except one...
I should have loved you better,
and when I should have,
I should have thought harder
on the cause and effect
but then, we know,
you were always
a better friend to me, 
than I was to you.

My first read of your work... I feel compelled to review this. You wrote down an expression of truth here. I know so many of us reading this can relate and you helped to put those feelings into words. Yes they are your word and your feelings, but now they are shared experiences for those lucky enough to find your poem. Nobody wants to eat a plastic cupcake... this was yummy! Thank you for your work.
Be well.

Of course it's personal and beauty comes more easily from the things most deeply felt. Your writing proves this. I am truly impressed by your work and will be viewing more of it soon.

Thank you for reading, and I would be most honored :)
No need to review? What nonsense.......you wrote with feeling and great emotion, your words are unlocked for all to read, to feel, to drown in, alas it happens to most, we rarely give out more than we receive.........untill It's to late, then we realize our mistake......beautifully written... :O)
