What Has Been Lost And Left Behind.

I don't remember.

It is not because I don't want to,

It is because I can't,

Those memories, those recollections,

They don't exist,

There is nothing,

But empty spaces, silent moments,

That stretch for hours days and years.

 

 

I feel like I have been stolen from,

Like I left a door open,

A window slightly ajar, a key in the lock,

And someone slipped in,

Raping my mind, stealing what they could find,

But what are they worth to others?

They have their own,

Why would they need mine?

 

I long to reminisce,

To daydream of what I miss,

To picture that and picture this,

Replace what is amiss,

I wish I could remember who and when,

How and why, now and then,

Of playing games, of lets pretend,

Of days out and days in,

But…

 

I guess when they are gone,

They are forever gone,

Lost in time, lost in the spaces in-between,

Lost in living life, in continuing,

And even though there are new ones to be made,

News ones with meanings and something to say,

They are short lived, snippets of time,

For they will never replace,

What has been lost,

And what has been left behind.

I have been meaning to comment on this poem since I first read it... I absolutely love this. It's rhythmic and fun to read while at the same time making me melancholy but with that twisted sadness that is so desirable, for the moments that have been truly been lost and left behind. My favorite is the second stanza and you had me thinking of it during my days at work...
Thank-you Unwanted So glad to see some of your recent work, dare I ask for more?

Hi Teresa

Thank you for your comment and wow I am both please and surprised that it gave you something to consider when you were at work. That has to be - from a writers view - one of the kindest comments, just as making someone emotional would be.

Even though I have been away from here for a few years, and will be a little more of an occasional visitor now - i think - I didn't stop writing, and will probably upload the best of what was composed during that period. So you will see recent and what I would consider old appearing slowly.

Nice to meet you again, and glad to see you are still here yourself, and I will try to get round to reading some of your works - as well as others. However that is my worst quality, the fact that as a writer, I am probably one of the worlds laziest readers. I wish I had the same hunger to read, as I do the passion/desire to write.

Thank you again.
Dave
