May 7th

Updated on May 8, 2013

Tijani Achamlal is an English Teacher in Nador, Morocco.He studied English Literature in Mohamed 1 Univ .

In May7th
The sky was blue
but it fell down
even though
melancholy
On his head
crashing
the yesterday
freezing the moment
postponing the life ahead
abundent
it might seem
the bubbles he used to
cling to,
some exploded
in the middle of the air
Some flown
over the hills
far away
How he chased,how he yelled, how he cried
No one
seemed to care
No one

seemed to come
to sooth the heart
and bring back
the smile to the face
All the daisies shriveled
and died
All the creatures he loved
without
wax
and condition
withdrew
in droopy eyes
and draggy feet
Everything he needed
gone wild
scurrying into
the darkness.
In conspiracy with Satan
She tore
his heart apart
in May 7th
leaving a small note
on the fridge:
"You are not the missing piece
of my puzzle
nor the soul-mate any longer
My path is welltroden
to Jesus it leads
Yours hazy maze
to Hell it heads "

He tried to stand
to sponge the blow
to squeeze it
to swallow it up
in one big gulp
down
into the depth
where it could be enshrined
and buried
as a secret
sacred tomb
but he failed
It recoiled,
refusing
to succumb to the yield
suffocating
as a lump
It had been stayed in his throat
ever since.

      James,

      Take it from me time doesn't heal all wounds, but time does ease every wound. No matter how deep they do eventually heal to scars that cause you problems every now and then. Sometimes scars are a part of who we are, but we choose how to use then. You can either give in to the pain are use the as a power source to make you stronger. I've done both in my time. I've found it's always better to move on and let them fade , but learn the lesson they have to teach and be careful the next time.

      I have been one to wall up my heart before. Till someone came along and pulled it down brick by brick. No it was not my man it was a friend. the greatest friend anyone could ever ask for. She was one of the few people in this world I knew I could always count on and trust. I've learn it's better to not have that wall there standing in the way so I've never put it back up again. I still guard it against disaster, but now I also let people like her close.

      James,

      You're right, time doesn't heal all wounds, despite the popular saying. Time might fade the scars, but it will not heal all wounds. The first love, that will be the hardest for anyone to get over, that is where all those "falling in love" feelings happen for the very first time, but you know, it will only make you appreciate true even more the next time it comes around. No, you will not carry the wound as a scarlet letter, it will be there as a memory of darker times but it only adds to your depth and character and it does not define you, maybe refine, not define.

      Guard your heart but don't build a wall around it, there will be a time again that you will want to share it with someone and they will tend to it the only way one should. Sometimes you have to walk on a beaten path to get to a glorious road! I'm glad you don't have any regrets, regets only way us down and there is nothing to regret because each experience only makes us stronger and wiser. Looking forward to that poem :-)

      Cat,

      Time heals not all wounds,but just some,It depends on how deeper they are.She was my first love and I the number 4 for her.Someone different:the oriental,the bizarre I was.She tried me and left when she got stuffed. Rose Kennedy frightened me when she said that time would not heal all wounds because she believed that the wounds remain in time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.i am wondering am I going to carry that wound as a scarlet letter .One thing I am sure of is that I am not the same like before.Many things have broken inside.I am crippled inside as John Lennon says.Maybe If I find someone ,I will be recovered and the wound will be healed and finally my ex will be just a vague memory like a ship when leaving the port,it becomes smaller and smaller till it fades in the horizon.

      I dont regret anything.My next poem will be about that:)

      James,

      'Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option' - that's beautiful... we should live by that! I know it's hard to feel anything other than hurt when we are cast aside, but you have to understand that you are worth being everything to someone, you deserve to be someone's priority and when you are, that will be the truest love and nothing will be able to break it. We cannot blame ourselves for the choices of others and I hope you never look to what you could've done better or have any regrets! Hang in there, you're someone's priority, they just haven't found you yet :-)

      Cat,

      Yeah,the sun will shine again and everything will be okay at the end.The May 7th has proved to me that Mark Twain was right when he said: Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.I was her option ,so when someone came with better offers,she tore my heart into pieces and ran to a guy from the same tribe.I am different,I belong to different world.I was always the one who offered compromises so as to make what is called between us going on.When she left,she said the reason was religion but It wasnt the truth.A friend of her told me that her old boyfriend chased her here and wanted her to come back,so she took that decision and left .

      James,

      Oh this is terribly sad, but not in a pitiful way... I know true heart and I also know that regardless of how hard the rest of the world tries to make the sun shine on your behalf, your sky is filled with darkness and heavy clouds. There is no comfort and there is nothing that can be said, but tomorrow is a new day and the sun will eventually return! Beautifully done!

      Thanks so much for the support .I really am trying to get over it .You know first love is hard to forget because it's the first. Just like anything that's a first, you don't forget it. It's a special thing. It may take time to move on..Sigh..really I am tired of the feeling.If only it is possible to purge it out forever..Sigh

      Thanks so much once again!

      Many blessings to you !

      @ Minnetonka Twin.Thanks for the supporting words.I was taught that pain is temporary and all matters of things shall be well but It seems not correct with all cases.Mine is complicated.Sometimes,I feel I am okay and I can chin up and live my life but other times,I feel I m not yet,still need time.Since i cant forgive ,I am stuck and cant finally let go .The question is am I doomed to carry this sadness

      Thanks for the visit and comment.

      Very painful and moving poem. I hope you find some peace in your heart after this break up. I can still remember the pain I felt when me and my college sweetheart broke up. I struggled for months and fell into a deep depression. Thank goodness I had my family to support me through it. My thoughts are with you.

      Love the last four lines Sir James - in fact your entire poetic prose threatned to jump out at me at any moment and grab me by the throat.

      I think I need a good stiff drink or some fresh air after this - I found the read unsettling but in a good way - you have mastered suspense here and it definitely got my pulse going - thank you for this thrilling read and sending you warm wishes from Colin and his cats on this pleasant early summer afternoon at lake erie time 4:30pm

      Sad, but well written poem from the heart. I'm sorry for the hurt, the pain, the overwhelming event of it all, which often shatters ones heart and soul when somebody leaves, especially if it is one we care about. My thoughts are with you James. Consider yourself hugged! : )
