Loud Memories

Updated on March 29, 2015

I remember

smiling at you,

back when our skin

was inseparable.

And when it’s late

and I can’t sleep

it’s cause I can feel

your need for me.


Would you believe

just yesterday,

I picked up my phone

and scrolled to your name?

As I dialed,

my heart smiled,

but hearing the disconnected tone

reminded me I’m all alone.


I remember

kisses from you,

but now to see your face,

I have to look at the moon.

I can’t sleep in silence

cause I feel your death.

I need lights on and some music

and it’s almost like you’re not gone yet.


I still remember wearing your scent,

back when your body

was all I’d wear.


I still remember the tug

of your fingers in my hair.

I can still remember my name

in my ear and your lips so close,

they’d gently touch my earlobe.


I can remember a vow

to not let you go.


How was it alright for you to leave,

if I didn’t agree not to see you anymore?


I still remember the crash.

I remember the ambulance.

I remember you coughing when you’d breathe.

I remember watching your head bleed.

I remember the words

“dead on the scene”


I remember when you believed in angels

cause you thought

you were invincible.


Yea, I still remember everything.

      Death only seems an ending. There are times when a loved one can do more on "the other side of the veil" than here whispering in our ear. This was a beautiful rehearse of what separation seems to mean to so many who are left behind with questions outnumbering answers. There are answers that in time will come.

      Thanks, Philly! Fortunately, I've never experienced this kind of loss. I got the inspiration for the poem from an episode of Law & Order lol
