A Forlorn Moment poem #FridayReflections

When you left
I gathered broken words and
a dimmed-down heart.

I sat in silence
flooded with those salty words
you said.

There was not
a light of hope,
self-doubt prevailed.

I resolved
never to think of you
ever again.

I kept coming back
to that wretched scene
a permanent sunset of your weaknesses.

I felt compelled
to playout my dream
as real as poisoned apples and magic beans.

Ah! where has my heart gone again,
and again and again
A heart that was never your prize.

I trained my heart
to never miss you again, for
you shooed me off even when I tried not to walk away.

The cost of embracing fire
is in being burned
and I’m afraid I may actually never heal.

But I will find folds
to bury this moment
so I may never find it again.
