With me Often

Always in my mind

I talk to you

of my hopes

challenges

all the big and the small,

drifting inside the ebb and flow

of your proudness and sympathy.


Closing my eyes

I dream of a time spent together

wrapped up in your arms

protected by your presence.


It’s always the best time

with you by my side

I imagine that you see

understand all of what I am,

experienced as one.


Even though it’s just a fantasy,

it comforts me.


For just a moment

I am blinded

from a world

full of false promise

certain disappointment.


Forgetting of how you’re never here

always walked away

leaving me to fall apart

once more,

I speak to you often

in my mind.

Your heart was so open in this poem, such a deep sentiment to share about a relationship. I hope things get better as time goes on, keep a positive outlook. Praying for your recovery.
