A Poem by shadowtigers

Sometimes hearts remember what minds do not.


I remember you
From when our eyes first met
For what should have been
The first time
I spoke long sentences
Volumes of words
I held so deep
Within my heart
But yet my lips
Never said
More than a smile
Your soul called to me
In images of dreams
Telling me to remember
Long ago the place
That neither my flesh
Nor mind could ever reach
But where my spirit
Roamed free
I remembered you
In that moment
Under the cold gray sky
Your blond hair
Rain soaked
Brushing your lips
As you spoke to me
Giving apologies
That you did not have to speak
Nor were they mine to take
So many things
I wanted to say
In that eternal second
That slipped by
Between our hands
Like a grain of sand
That returned us
To our roles as strangers
On that frozen morning
I still remember you
The way you looked
Back into my eyes
Wondering if I felt
The same chasm
Around us growing wider
With each step you took
I felt all the dreams
Slip away
As the light around us
Pushed back our souls
Once again into our flesh
where we were
Trapped and speechless
I saw you turn
Disappear into the fog and rain
Calling to me
saying words
I could no longer hear
And I felt myself slip away
As you left
Longing for the time again
When I could
Look deep within your eyes
And smile

Author's Note

This piece was actually taken from a moment in my life, when I met such an extraordinary person, I was speechless. A time, when upon meeting a complete stranger, I could have sworn I knew them before, perhaps in another life.

There is so much emotion in this; it's so beautiful, 'Your blond hair, rain soaked' So vivid.. and it's so true our hearts remember a lot. Beautiful.

You conveyed that incredible feeling where you're so overwhelmed everything seems to almost freeze. You did a great job of explaining something so complicated and unexplainable.
