Another week, another Poetry Thursday! I wrote a few poems in the past few weeks, and now that I’m making this post I’ve come to the realization that I’m not very happy with them. Well it’s more the second one, but I am a stickler for detail. I think it’s missing something, but I haven’t figured out what yet. This will probably be a poem that sometime in the future I’ll rework and share again. And I suppose sharing it while it’s like this won’t kill me, feedback is always a good way to see what people think. Anywho, enough incoherent ramblings, enjoy! Let me know what you think! And I hope everyone has a great day!
When I Left
Fingerprints buried in the dust,
memories lost – faded away.
Echoes – voices, begging to stay,
yearning for what I cannot trust.
My cheeks stained with forgotten tears.
This broken heart beats with regret
of what I cannot forgive or forget;
my mistake ringing in my ears.
Taunted by all I left behind,
aching to have you just once more –
to feel your love within my core.
Haunted by what I cannot find.
My heart is sleeping,
drifting by in this dream.
I am silently weeping
for I cannot scream.
For his kiss I wait,
aching for one to hold dear.
Lonely sleeping in this fate,
alas, my prince is not here.
