After the Silence

after the silence
After the deafening silence
spanning several years
You appeared out of nowhere
and invited me to fly with you
to find a heaven of our own
as usual you didn’t listen
so you didn’t understand
I am not the person
that you loved and left
I’m not who I used to be
Make yourself see!
The long silence
has worked its magic
It hurt me,
stabbed me with painful memories
Then it healed me
numbing the pain
Created more memories,
without you in them
I made a sanctuary for my self
where you no longer have the place you had
So know that
After the silence
Even though I have become your priority
You are no longer even an option for me

  1. Hey
    Thank you for taking the time to step on over to Love Relaished Ink. It’s wonderful to have your whimsical soul as a new companion on my long and winding road.
    From what I have seen of your blog so far, I’ve no doubt you are already finding writing a totally engaging and personally fulfilling experience. I hope the pleasurable company of words will always flow and follow you as you flow following the flow of your flowing path flowing into the wide blue yonder, and flow onwards towards the adventures that follow the flow beyond that…
    Best wishes. Take care always in all ways for always.
