Remembering Life

March 18, 2011 at 10:49 PM (Poetry)

Why does this sorrow

burn through my veins

this heat dispersing through

my mind, a slow poisonous miasma

An unending, never satisfying

swerving on the edges of emotion

I need, I need and no one sees


Juliet sobs and I just stare

wondering why, how the tears fall

will she reach out, remembering life

or will I be forever fated to meander

Wandering aimlessly, a life

lacking passion meaning soul

A soul with no remembered purpose rests in me


My spirit rises with the advent of hope

Adrenaline rushing, fooling filling flooding

Flames lick at my veins and I do remember

Remember loss and life and regret

and so I run from this feeling

If only to find myself lost and lonely

once again on the edge of love
