I paired with quietness this weekend,
Awaiting to hear the steps of the pain,
Coming to remind me there is evil,
To show me how much leaving you will hurt.

I prayed for rain, so I could hide the tears,
Just in case they decide to appear.
I locked myself and my six senses away
From the rest of the colorless world,

I didn’t want any witness to my despair.
I was sure I will sleep with darkness, deaf,
Attempting to kill the urge to miss you.

I was ready to fight my non-existing patience,
To give another chance to you, to us.
I expected to say: ” I made a mistake!”
But, none of it happened, I didn’t break.

And I don’t want to wonder why, to ask,
Was it after all a love worth living, was it love at all?
I just want to enjoy the strange sigh of relief and
The freedom, now, when they finally came to visit.

    Very sad. Another great one Blaga. Enjoy the weekend.

    Well I’ve been reading the last few ones in reverse order. Sounds like you’ve been having a tough time lately – unless you’re like me and you just write waht comes out, no matter what you feel. Either way, it’s a sad poem, and I can definitely relate to it. I think my favourite line is: “so I could kill the constant urge to miss you”; boy, have I been there.

      Hi Cherlyn! Honestly I am perfectly ok. Thanks though! I was away this weekend and I just scheduled ahead before I left few old poems to be posted even if I’m away. This one was written 4 months ago, but yes I am a bit like you, I might be sad and still write about happiness and the opposite :)

    Think I understand what you meant. Excellent poem, and very insightful.
