Memory, A Reflection

Poem By Daryl lyraD

Give me a moment, a second
to gather my thoughts.
A minute fraction of my mind,
yearning, wanting, remembering

those intense feelings once shared between us and
oh how long ago those times were,
how long they seemed,
when in actuality, those snippets were rather short and blur

How often we used to sit through nights,
gazing, wondering pondering
into the night and future,
whatever held before us and
how we should treasure now and always.

We said forever and ever,
but our actions begged to differ.
If i could retrace those steps,
back to when I said those
hurtful, piercing, harsh words,
I'll take it back, take them all back.

I'm sorry and how
I wished what happened after was fantasy, a dream.
This intangible feeling of guilt and sadness is overwhelming.
One thing I'll ask of you,

Let me keep either my sanity or you.

Empty fields, deserted concrete
all that is left in this barren place.
There's nothing
I hold dear, nothing.

Before the night slowly disappear,
there's some stuff I wish to say,

First my feelings for you

Suicide Note

The words you used,
those baseless sentences
filled with uncertainty
and ambiguity.

3 Words (They Still Stand)

3 words I have
for you and
only yours 2 hear.

What Is Love?

What is love? A mere obsession,
yet more powerful than anything?
Or a life-long decision
merging two lives, a wedding.

Missing You

So what does it take
to make you change your mind and
finally come back
