Dying Inside.

Updated on May 25, 2010

I am dying inside

as I lay that final bouquet

of wilted Forget-me-nots

on that special place

in the mausoleum

of your heart.....

where you let your love

for me embrace a slow death

drying to a hollow husk

of dusty dreams,

now crumbling

as I genuflect

over its loss.

It is dank and cold here

but a tiny whiff of your

sweetness still lingers

in the empty air around me.

I breathe its essence

and blow a kiss at the

mummified remains of our love.

It's passing stirs

a long stilled soul to regret

and a crystal teardrop

beads and slips quietly

in stereo tumbles

over your cheek and mine

only to be absorbed

in the dry earth where

yesterdays lie buried,

and tomorrows are a monument

to sorrows not yet visited,

I am dying inside

all alone,

for you have long since

passed on without me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~MFB III

      What makes me happy about this one in spite of the gloom it conveys..is how the power of love is demonstrated in your words..You let us realize once more..exactly what love is..exactly how one feels about it..how one idealizes and remembers the loved one..all these things can only be retold by a true poet.

      Thanks once more!

      This touched me deeply as I recently saw my mother interred into her mausoleum crypt next to my dad and grandparents.
