. . .Losing Her

KENNETH AVERY
KENNETH AVERY | Source

The dreaded day . . .

She lived, breathed in an instant; charmed, stepping back to youth

Eyes of stardust, heaven’s heart, a longing to be my tapestry.

Lilypad laughter; skipping the blade; staring past an idol remade.

Hunger afoot; carried her from and back to three; when God


Trusted in giving her to me.

Years like fog; creatures of burden. Drank the wine of absurdity;

Dressing like the dawn; envying the angel’s breath, and rusty halo unseen.

Youthful cares; broken, tear-dripping stairs; I lay beneath her face.

Clasping, surging her blood; looking, looking, blindness by fools.


Walking once. Sleeping twice. An eyelash I keep.

Cursed be the morn; I grope with a word, hoping she will live,

Turn, appear . . .only once. Only a moment measured . . .

Absolute rhythms, universal greetings, her to vanish with me.


Alas, the vulture sighs; death, lives, and dies. A choked vow.

Rainbows we mastered with cups divine. Tear drops we lost

To forget one heart. War to set and a love inset, I drown.

Upward, circular dimensions of prisms unseen. She winked.

The axis knelt. A heart not loved, not captured, an angel not.


In a moment, jealous time, sandy eyelash, pinkish hues of mine

Easel of hatred; brush of ice; she touched; lived; gave a soul entwined.

Eagles silent. Serpents dead. Nothing exists. A tale not seen.

Cherubim’s sing; hearts bleed; phantom atop his raging steed.


Tiny her steps. Whispers her words. Crawling as a beast, I hurt.

A rope to here. A nod to there. Where can “this” opaque being be?

Running chained; no name tamed, yet “I” fail.

She moves her silver gate; Biblical monuments escape, yet “I” cry.


Looks down; Slightly smiles; she feels the scars, wasted miles.

Reaching, I beg for one spark, one flicker, a compassion not known.

Breath hates my soul. I lose the toll, she vanishes, a heart in line.

My eyes dimmed. I tremble. I whimper. “I” fail.


No name. Shame is her foe. And gowns of others lost.

I saw her once, a shadowed kiss. Embracing her death.

Her lips, far more perfect than creation. And eyes see through darkness nigh.

I dreamed. She loved. The lines of mystery entwine.


Where gardens live, and creatures stir. She masters, nourishes, returns.

A sermon by a fleshly-mouth; deafness to the masses in time.

She lilts here. There. Teasing. Loving my scent.

Money gone. Wars unsought. No home I have to give.


Beasts in stars and “I” on knees, never kneeling to entity around.

She spoke, I died. And sands of Egypt flew to my soul.

A laugh again. A journey of ten, yet “I” can never have


A lock, a perfumed-instant, a hand to push her sky.

Children laugh. Clowns in mocked array parade the dark seas.

Vultures fly. Their time is gone. And “I” still touch her cheek.

A twitch, a giggle, a daring walk to prove


Giving all, gaining none, and yet, “I” am to one beat.

At last. Our past. A silken sigh to say.

Good-bye, eternal bliss. And God’s peace we drank.

Seething, searing, she takes my heart, rends my soul,

Walks on the wall, and “I” only able to fall.

Hello New Friend Kenneth,

Wow, this feels like you took a deep breath and a dry sponge, split your already wounded belly with a knife, and soaked up every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears you could ever offer. Squeezed it all out here, in these words, your pain. It is that visible, that tangible, that gut-wrenching--especially to those whom have loved and lost. This is epic. Beautiful. And, now I'm somehow even more honored (and humbled) that you had such incredibly nice things to say about my own, bumbled writing. :-)

Anyway, I am so, so very sorry for your loss and subsequent pain. Love and pain I have endured in spades, but thus far, deep, personal loss eludes me. God, I pray it's a very, very long time before I experience what you have expressed so eloquently here.

On another note, I also have fibromyalgia. Good times. Good times.

Voted UP and looking forward to soaking up more of your word-smithy-ness. Thank you, Kenneth.

suzettenaples profile image

suzettenaples 5 years ago from Taos, NM

What a beautiful and heartbreaking poem all at the same time. And, very well-written and composed. Actually, I do think this is better than what I have written. It is so sad to "lose" a great love. But, may be you are not the one that has "lost". May be she has lost more in not staying with you. I don't like to look at all situations as win/lose. People come into our lives for a time and we learn important lessons and then perhaps it is time for them to go. I don't know - nothing in this world seems permanent anymore - life is so effemeral.

Again, this is very well-written and I like the images in this poem.

Hello, back at ya, New Friend Trips,

Hey, YOUR comment was so colorful, realistic and honest. Thank YOU for your words of comfort and encouragement. We can all, as human beings, never grow tired of the peace and jubiliation of winning, but we seemingly cannot embrace "that" certain, unspoken peaceful reality of losing. It only hurts worse as time goes by. For me. Thanks for taking time to read and visit with me, Trips. YOU are definitely a SUPER Hubber and Friend. KENNETH

kenneth avery 5 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

Good morning, shanaya...A SINCERE THANK YOU for your comment on this hub. Honestly, this was 'work' to compose. When loss and love are in the same vein, it's always a warfare. Have you ever noticed that? Seems like loss always has the edge in these emotional conflicts. YOUR comment shed some warm light on my heart today. For your comments and friendship, I thank YOU very MUCH. KENNETH

Greetings , Ms Dora! How are you today? Well, I pray. Life is funny, Ms Dora. And you are correct in your wish that life has compensated me for my loss, well to me, when I lose myself in giving to others in life, somehow the rewards from my giving, although do not happen instanteneously, do come back to me always in a future time. Never understood that. Thanks, Ms Dora for your warm comment. KENNETH

kenneth avery 5 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

Warm Greetings, suzettenaples! Thanks for the sweet words of power. And I am sorry, but "I" am the one who lost in this, what used to be, an "emotional paradise." But whoever said life was fair? Not even Jesus said anything like this when HE was here with us. In this emotional canyon, there is something I need to see,learn, and live by. I guess the rest of my life will be spent doing these these three things. Thanks again, suzette, for your kindness. Sincerely, KENNETH

Dear JinnyMarte, THANK YOU, SINCERELY, for your warm and touching comment. I really needed to read something like this today. You must be able to read minds, for this was perfect, what you said. I feel as if I should repay you for your GENUINE care and warmth. If I learned just one thing in the 23 years I spent in the newspaper business, it's that no matter hard we work to hide "us" behind what we write, here or anywhere, there are people, like YOU, who can see through our various masks we wear when presenting our stories--bad, sad, or good. Thanks again. I am in your debt. Sincerely, Kenneth


JinnyMarte 5 years ago

Well, I can definitely relate my friend. As one who has experienced loss and often have tried to sweeten or masquerade reality through words. It is always an honor to share with people like you and me...


kenneth avery profile image

kenneth avery 5 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

Dear Jinny . . .THANKS. (typed in ALL capital letters to emphasize HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE YOUR words). And talking about honor, if you had been on the side of the tracks with me as a boy, having no friends, nor material goods to speak of, and someone like YOU came along--so genuinely compassionate and nice. YOU would jump for joy as I have since first making contact with YOU, a superb writer, you express yourself masterfully in each story. Jinny, DEAR friend, you definitely have THE Gift. I have known this for some time. Please never hide your talent. YOU have touched my life with your gift. And thousands more if the truth be known. Have a peaceful night. With MY highest regards, KENNETH


JinnyMarte 5 years ago

Is it right for me to say that I really appreciate this words you have wrote, though I think I don't deserve them...I will definitely take your advise with the necessary seriousness. I believe in blessings and this is one of them... I can relate greatly with your childhood depiction. I believe the GIFT belongs to us all...thank you one more time...and good night as well...

Ah, Kenneth. Beautiful words. Your descriptions are so vivid. Your word choices are exact and bring the poem to life. I was touched and gripped by the depth of this poem.

I wish I could take the credit, but I try to be mindful that there isnt a place on Hubs for EGOTISTICAL jerks like me if I were to start feeling BIG HEADED. That isnt me, but YOU, Victoria, are so encouraging. I wish I could do something nice for you. And I will if you will tell me what I can do. Sincerely and Best of Everything to YOU and PLEASE, come back to see me often. KENNETH

Because you lost your love, you think that being with her would have been perfect. That is not necessarily so.

Just being honest. And yes, you are so right, even with 'that' love, there would be their own brand of obstacles. Thanks for the wisdom. Sincerely, KENNETH

snakeslane 4 years ago from Canada

To put a name to the pain, I've written frequently in this vein, of all pains imagined or real, heartache (lost love) takes its toll. Is there a lesson in this? I don't know, but it makes good poetry. You make good poetry Kenneth Avery. I see from the comments this is not your usual genre, which makes it even more intriguing. Takes a lot of guts to bare ones loss, but in doing so we discover that we are not really alone after all. Regards, snakeslane


kenneth avery profile image

kenneth avery 4 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

Dear snakeslane,

Thank you for these warm comments, but no, poetry, especially abstract/prose poetry is far from my genre. This, like all of us, is a painful 'entity' a memory that has taken on a life of itself, so to speak, over the years and this was the only exit I gave it to leave me. And my soul. Thank God for HubPages. And you are right, snakes. We are really NOT alone. "All is one. And one is all." My thanks to you, snakes, Kenneth

Dear iva,

My sincere thanks to you for such a moving comment as this. Im NOT worthy of such niceties. I feel very small. Inadequate. But I do appreciate you taking time to read this and give of yourself in your remarks. If you only knew the story behind the story...well, someone once said, "tears are a language that God understands," I believe it was Gospel singer/writer, Dottie Rambo, who said this and it is so true of this hub. Over the years, and until I came face-to-face how "I" really felt inside about 'her'...the one fading from my grasp....many tears have flowed from my eyes when I first learned just HOW DEEPLY IN LOVE I was, and still am, with 'her.' Another hub in another time, maybe.

Thanks so much!

Kenneth

"...she lived, breathed in an instant; charmed, stepping back to youth

Eyes of stardust, heaven’s heart, a longing to be my tapestry.

Lilypad laughter; skipping the blade; staring past an idol remade..." How lovely and Kenneth: what an unusual style you have! Been wanting to check you out since you left such sweet comments for me on my own hub, and I'm glad I did. Is the picture of the actual person you are writing about? She is very beautiful nonetheless, as are your exotic lines and random little rhymes, which add just the right amount of seasoning. Thumbs up, Kenneth! All the best to you-

Hello, Steele Fields, I am humbled by YOUR sweet comments on this poem. I will, for now, jus offer you my sincere thanks for reading and commenting. Both MEAN A LOT TO ME. And sadly, no, this isnt her. I COULD get a photo, but I regard 'her' too much to bring publicity to her. I talk to her often. And hurt everytime I do. Ive never had her in the capacity that my heart wanted, but visual and audio are great blessings too. Steel, I again, thank you. And now going to check out your hubs.
