To Brian

“Whether we see each other next week or next month … never again. It doesn’t matter, it’s only time …”

~Brian Kinney



I lost them.
The words. The emotions.
There is only the rage of
not speaking, not feeling.

I lost them.
The sparkles. The raindrops.
There is only heartache from
the steel lamp posts.

I lost them.
The golden gardenia. The glow.
There are only memories
from avenue “Rayless truth”.

I lost him.
In the night. Forever.
There is only the time to
remind me of him and it hurts.

    This is sad coming from a hurt heart!

    Bubble Blossom, I am yet to understand myself why such things happen to only a chosen few.. or else they prove to be 1st time lucky!

    I wish you all the very best in everything you do..
    Sending you warm hugs Dear One xoxox

    Amazing poem! I think it is absolutely beautiful, though sad. The sadness and heartbreak is so beautiful. I hope the sadness fades away for good

    Have missed you. On-and-offline in spirits in between “stuff.” Hope all is well.

    This is actually a rather extraodinary poem. The pacing and flow is perfect and I like the way it builds to conclusion. The sadness of it enhance by the repitition. Good job! Worthy of multiple reads, which it will get from me. Thank you!

    The impact of this poem is stunning especially for those who have loved and lost (which is like everybody). I hate losing my sparkle.

  12. jennirey Says:

    Having not chanced to dance… dream.. wish… want … love.. we become stagnant and wall like and allow dust to settle on our soul… Hugs to you that the pain will cease soon..

  13. Purvi Says:

    There are often such times when we all have felt like that.. to express oneself so beautifully even in such stark times comes onyl from true poets.. beautifully said!

  14. siubhan Says:

    That last verse, especially, just gets you in the gut with its emptiness and heartache. Powerfully tragic.
