Dear beloved

Dear beloved

A Poem by grace
"

I wrote a letter to you

"
dear beloved, i wrote a letter to you
through this weathered time, the few things i never said
abiding in the hoax of seeing you again
tears down my neck, oh how could i forget
amidst everything we see, a fine line weaves,
where yearnings and reality dance like autumn leaves

lurking in the cascades of chaos,
your voice is still the one i hear.
And i still look for you to find what's real
every time i think of you, a little more i heal
u've been like the light in the midst of strife
And i hope i'll say this to you in some other life

Might i have been the one to calm the storm
Might i have been the one to keep you warm
Might i have been the one to light your way
Would you have stayed?
Would you have been ok?
Would you?

Silently, i scream out loud in this hue,
all the things i never said,
the things that fill me with dread.
So, i'll keep writing even if you're gone,
hoping you'll get my message from the blue.
Oh dear beloved, i wrote a letter to u,
hoping that it will find its way through.

thanks for the read request, grace. enjoyed the read.
my version:

everytime i think of you i drown
unable to go for the kill
knowing fully well this could be our last run-down

you didn't let me in
your cloak so here i am
standing outside like a clown

but i'm still here
waiting for you
to unpiece the pieces of you
that you choose to hide under your shawl

There are a lot of mixed emotions when someone's no longer here with us. Or no longer willing to remain in our lives. You convey a tone of hurt, but also of compassion tinged with regret. It calls to mind the scenario that comes up when we wish we had just 5 more minutes with someone who passed on. 5 minutes to do what, though. To laugh? Cry? To share sentiments we were too foolish to share in the moment? Good work, Grace. Thank you for sharing.

Dear Grace
This is a very sensitive, personal word...you words convey a feeling of loss, yet you desire something to grasp onto, even though you know it is for naught...perhaps it comforts you to keep writing letters in an apologetic tone.. like maybe you could have done more to replenish the relationship...I feel as if there may be some self blame in this correspondence...your words really give the reader a clear understanding that something is very wrong... very well written...
Warmly, B

The flow and phrasing are so well done. This poem has a certain momentum. It grips the reader and doesn't let go until the end.

Thank you so much again for another beautiful compliment! You are really kind.
' your voice is still the one i hear. ' Perhaps that is what matters, knowing whether or not the sounds, the nuances, were sincere or thought of in that way. Can only guess that something happened, that's still remembered - will never be forgotten. nothing. But there are people who stay together in different ways .. if meant to. Otherwise one or other or both limp(s) along, getting nowhere. Here you write with a sweet and sincere tone. Bless you, grace.

Your first stanza is beautiful.

Thank you so much for reading it! Means a lot.
We can't live in guilt blaming ourselves for the actions or inactions of others. Everything is a choice and there's always a crossroad at the intersection of fate. I've lost so many friends and family, it's not easy to be the one left behind. I have to believe they'd want me to live for them and enjoy every moment I have left.
