I Remember


Memories (Photo credit: Prathima Pingali)

I remember your deep, glittering eyes
Reaching mine
I remember your soft, beautiful voice
Trapped in time

I remember your pain, of such depth
Reaching out
I remember the passion, blood stricken
Leeching out

I remember the madness of guile
And delusion
I remember the others loyal
In their collusion

I remember the lies and truths
Lost for all
I remember your devilry
Siren call

I remember the innocence
I lost for all time
I host your sad memory
Within my rhyme

    You’re going to have to stop writing these moving poems. I can’t leave stupid comments after them.

    I love the structure – pacing the rhythm over two different lines makes it read uniquely, aided by your phrasing and rhyme. It’s splendid and a treat to read. Exceptional work Helen.

  9. Helen, another lovely, evocative verse. πŸ™‚
