Without You


I remember, when we met
Where and how.
I remember, my levitation
When you said yes
To my fumbled invitation.

I remember, walking with you
Your hand held tightly, in mine.
Warmth spreading through me,
Leaking through my smile,
To rest on your perfection.

I remember, silly jokes.
And impossible,
Was not a word to us.
We, who built snowmen in July,
And sunbathed in December.

I remember, that wondrous day
We first made love.
Inexpertly, but urgently.
Rushing blood and eager hands,
Transporting us to magic lands.

I remember, the day you said goodbye.
Stomach knotted, still besotted,
Heart just screaming, Why? ?
You walked away, that silent day,
And left me there to cry.

Of course, I built another life,
Consigned the magic to the ground.
But knowing, all along
That I would never, really be alive,
Without You.

    It is sad those lost loves that can never be replaced...ever.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
