So

you want to
                         read
yourself
                here

you want to
                      know

yourself
              loved
and lost and missed and regretted

well

you are

you are

you are

there was a time
                              yes
when i believed in a
forever
             together
when i believed in a
forever
             beyond

so what

so
    fucking
what

you come to me
                            now
with your
happiness
with your
anger
with your
lament
            for
what might should would could
have
         been

if only
          i

had believed wanted trusted wished
enough

so many words so many words so many words

of which you know
                                  so
little

So

be happy
be safe
be well

but
       never
doubt
           NEVER
doubt

that i loved

you

    thank you very much, Jingle — I hesitate to join only because my time is always so limited and i would never want to over-commit

    i greatly appreciate you reading me — it means a lot 🙂

    this is a very powerful piece about the everlastingness of love and how you never forget. Two paws up 🙂

    I wrote a poem about reincarnation and love; you may have read it before; if not here it is:

      Katley, thank you so much — and i especially thank you for being such a faithful reader — it means more to me than you know.

      I went to Helium and read your piece — it’s lovely — but i couldn’t figure out how to leave a comment on it there — not surprising with me — but thank you for leaving the link as I’d not read it before and really enjoyed it 🙂

  5. Ahhh heartbreak. The one thing all writers have in common. Great job on this one.

    I finally have time to read this and take it in and I can really feel this one, words flowing through the mushy parts of the spine kind of feel. Excellent, as always.
