You

You

A Poem by Sam
"

A fictional poem about your lover dying

"
Tear me apart limb by limb
Darling I will always love you
You’ve stopped replying to my texts and calls
Your name forever on my mind
Forever on your mother and father’s mind

I still listen to your voice
Your voice on your voicemail
Asking for my name and number
Saying you will call me back

You never call me back anymore
You never contact me anymore
I still have your favorite hoodie
I keep it on your side of the bed
It still smells just like you

You no longer sleep in my bed
The only sign of you on my bed is your hoodie
Your favorite hoodie that you loved so much
I am dreading the day it will no longer smell like you

It’s 4 AM and I miss you
I often wonder where you are
Did you find peace?
Is there nothing but darkness where you are?
Are you in heaven like you believed you’d go?

I will never know
I must wait my turn
Wait for death to come knocking at my door
And now I hear knocking on my door

Sounds like how much I miss my old man,
This is a wonderful emotional read

I have pedaled down many roads. But grief cannot be outrun. We long to die, to follow them across the veil. But what would they want for us?
Life must go in, does go on.

I had a best friend who died in a fire. I hope to see her again on whatever the next level is.

She died 38 years ago and I still miss her every day.

This poem has emotion that readers can relate to and cling to...
Most poems I write are not autobiographical...but I guess there is a little bit of us in every write we produce.

Man Sam, you had me going there. I was ready to call 911 and cry POET DOWN! Then I went back to the top and saw fictional. Whew! That's what excellent writing will do to you.

I hope you were ok with the Senryu I wrote for you? It was more intense than the others and worry that you might have been put off. It was what I sensed. 'Pologize if you were.
