Faraway from the Riverside

You told me that was the place you curse all your life. The place where you’ve been saddest, been hurt the most. How could you define it as close to hell?


Well in fact it was your heaven for some years…


Forgive me for hearing you with incomplete ears.


You told me how much you’ve hated crossing that river. The more you cross everyday, the more you die in some ways.


Tried it for few times…


It was lonely every night.


Tried it for few times…


It got lonelier every night.




Now you cry again.


I remember the place you’ve told me about…


Now the warm tears are falling.


I remember the river…it won’t stop flowing


With you or without…


Forgive me if it’s just now that I see.


Forgive me, if I don’t want to hear you.


Your warm tears, burning me…


Your dying heart is killing me…




Now I’m scared, my friend.


Just bring me anywhere else,


Faraway from the riverside.

that was for my Aunt..the river, the place was literally true..She wants to leave everything behind and start being a single mom. Yup, made it that way, out in the open to probably hear the readers experience ;)

thank you! :)

@Poet

Ohh, I see. well, I think everyone needs to make choices based on what is best for them.. Personally, I don't have a experience that comes to mind reading the above. I'm not looking to end anything, more so looking to grow and expand in happiness and love..(Though, it is a powerful poem) Have you ever read Cris A's poem "river"? I highly recommend it. It branded an everlasting image of a river for me..

@CM

I always appreciate your kind words. Thanks so much! :)

@Invictus

Yes it's about choices. And whatever her decision, she's not gonna be ending things that could stop her from growing and finding love and happiness again. Wish I could see her smile again..

Read a poem from Cris A and lookin forward to read more. Just found out then that he's Pinoy, too. I'll be reading that one next..(recommended by my fave poet) :) I like things that are everlasting :)

**I'm heading to my rooftop LOL THANKS my friend! :)

I loved the phrase "incomplete ears"! What a wonderful description of not listening actively when someone needs that. Thanks so much for sharing.

Love and peace

Tony

This is very moving and yes, I am touched by it. The riversiade is a strange fixation for so many things and conveys so many ideas, a place where things end and yet a continuance also.
