lost lovers 9 & 21
lost lover #9
We always talked about tomorrow
but I never enjoyed the day,
it’s one of my faults I’d say
you who woefully waltz away
into a past that I set astray
you let me know I didn’t know you when you walked away
you said you weren’t yourself when you met me that sunny day
lost lover #21
I stared out how the river generated reflection
I tend to think about you with many misconceptions
there’s no shade and heat alters my complexion
mountains barricade me to look towards your direction
behind the tree line of the river in a meadow your rejections
a sky, sky blue openly viewed with retrospection
damn me, damn you, damn nature too for the recollection
Agree with Gaby, the music of these lulls. Really like the line about “mountains barricade …” — I can really see it.
Yes, this is one to read aloud!
You can hear me read poetry on Instagram @jstpoetry. Look for the post with a cassette tape.
oh, for lost lovers…
