Never to Dry

Never to Dry

A Poem by C.J.G.

he left as quickly as he came


He left my heart

Almost as quickly as he entered,

But he left my soul

A piece of his

As a gift, I suppose.

I hate the wasted energy

I put into his heart, 

And yet I can never regret a moment

Or any tear

I shed for him.

He left my heart

As quickly as he entered,

With a wave of memories

Trailing behind.

He might have walked out

Of this heart,

But the drops left behind

On this soul

Will never dry.

He left my heart

As quickly as entered it.

But his muddy shoeprints left

In my mind,

Where his essence will lay,

Will bide forever.

It’s bittersweet, really,

Yet the bitter overtakes me,

And the sweet.

I feel sad

In knowing that it is over,

But I smile

Knowing that I’ve happily loved.

Because how many people can say

They have really, truly loved?

I can. And that’s all we can hope for.

I love the last bit of this. Its true that we have the memory and the fact that we've known what it feels like to be truly in love, even if its gone. Nice write.

Your last words are very true. To be in love and crazy with happiness is a very good thing. The poem told a sad story with a positive ending. I like the story in your poem. A excellent poem.
