One Last Poem

You asked me for one last poem,
As you said goodbye to us.
I asked myself,
what words am I to write,
other than from a broken heart
and a mind still swirling
at the pain of losing the girl
I love most?

You asked me for one last poem,
as you said that we’re now just friends.
Well, thank you
for the smile, and the love
lost in the confusion of feelings
leaving the blame on me.

You asked me for one last poem.
But I believed
this will never be the last
As I saw a ray of hope
in your eyes.

Sounds like... not easy to let go...?

bro vince, see the date at the bottom. letting go is not easy for the uninitiated. Persistence paid off.

Batang Malaya said...

That's it, mahirap nga... it always come back in our mind... hmm, what do u think would be meaningful, let go and be freed? or hold on and have pain? I'm just thinking aloud, tnx with your post, I'm reminded once again... :)

niceheart said...

Hmm, poet ka rin pala. Nice poem.

gbert said...

so what really happened? was it really the last? :)

Lazarus said...

thanks niceheart!

vince, gbert this poem was written after an LQ, when one wanted to give up and the other wanted to hold on. Anger blurred everything, including hope. But after a while, you'd be happy you didn't give up easily. And you'd be happily writing poems again.
