Poetic Mental Healing | Into All Of Us | A Poem

Scroll down to content

Connecting dot to dot

Body after body,

Love feels out of reach,

Hands longing to grasp skin,

Knees upon the shore,

Touching what will always

Remain a memory.

I tried to talk you out of it.

Tried talking myself into it.

Finding those sweet corruptible lines

Between your world and mine,

Now, the way things stand.

I wore your clothes on my way back.

Through clouds I flew

And looked for you everywhere.

I hit the ground and nothing had changed,

Everything was still the same,

Breathing amidst destruction

Yet the sun was shining.

And it couldn’t reach me.

I carried a suitcase full of death.

I smelled of you and you were gone.

Your ring, a carousel around my finger.

And I just kept walking with your choice

In my bones, street after street, a day by day city,

And I was wading through,

You made it so hard, so hard

To stand straight and move.

You couldn’t handle love.

And I would not have hesitated.

Not even for a second.

My love does not wither.
