Poem 38. SOON I SHALL BECOME A MEMORY

Poem 38. SOON I SHALL BECOME A MEMORY

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

waiting to be erased. ----Ed

(Photo: "Ed's Biggest Query")



You once promised me of eternity

That love I never asked but you insisted

Then I trusted my life to you like I cannot see

What will tomorrow brings to one who’s been dazzled.

 

Then, I felt the blind-fold was taken from my eyes

I saw who we were in this teeming lair

We’re birds of different plumage, take a glance

We can’t stay longer with each other’s air.

 

And I know  soon I’ll become a memory

Which will stay in your mind for just some time

I doubt it if you’ll still remember me

And the pains you caused in this heart of mine.

 

I still thank you for the times we had

You gave me my angel though she’s gone now

But don’t dare to come back, please don’t strive

For you are just a fleeting memory somehow…

I believe we can't go back in time. It would be nice if we could. I would have spoken less and loved more.
Memories with old age become gold. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

It’s seems like, to me, you wrote this in a perspective of a certain lover of the past…

Then, I felt the blind-fold was taken from my eyes
I saw who we were in this teeming lair
We’re birds of different plumage, take a glance
We can’t stay longer with each other’s air.

~ how beautiful yet sad, I find this second stanza, spoke something of a hardship that can never work out, that it can only be fixed by separation…. There are some relationships, that you or both have tried their best to work it out, but still it wasn’t enough to fix what’s broken, and through separation, the pain becomes a memory and soon to be forgotten, but the scar will remind both that the two have a past together, some happy moments, some hard… in time the pain will be bearable and easy to handle… then it would not be hurt anymore, just a faded scar…

and oh, about the picture, and its words... I like to ponder about it: there are many types of birds, often times birds are territorial species, but not sure if all of them are... so birds like us, always looking for a home... sure we are adventurous human beings, often times after the long journey, we always look go back to our heart's home... i guess my point is, we can always fly/go anywhere we want, but deep down inside our heart we always look for a home that we always look forward to in going home... like there is no place like home...

"we can't stay longer with each other's air"

phenomenal line..wish i had written that..

this poem is beautifully penned and oh so sad...

sometimes we just get taken in...love fools us...

it is like a con game to some...and they take so many victims.
