I Wonder If He Knew You

Updated on March 21, 2016

I shouted into the tomb of refusals
It was as I feared
There was no sound
Not even an echo of my voice
Indifference had shuttered her memory
A response was not worthy of her existence
Yet finally a faint sound melted away the silence
For once the sad song was about me
It was a song I never cared for
Suddenly it had meaning
Because it was about you
And me
But who played the notes you never heard?
Who wrote the words about a dream you never shared?
For once I wondered
How could a stranger know me so well
I wonder if he knew you too

      Hi Freya - Thank you. That means everything coming from you. I just try to feel the moment and not allow anything to stop the emotions...

      full of deep emotion. Your poem seems never fail to touch and stir, Mark. But it is rare I think, to found male poet as sensitive as you. Existed but rare. So far I only meet few in here.
