Some Things (poem)

Updated on March 11, 2014

I can’t tell what’s real anymore

Some things won’t leave me alone

-

The music plays familiar tune

As I go drifting off somewhere

Following silent surrender

Some things won’t leave me alone

-

Warm echoes of a past unknown

Take me again in waiting arms

Taking me back welcoming me

Calling to summers long ago

Far from the darkness of my room

Some things won’t leave me alone

-

Is it the fan or my heartbeat

Pulsing this wind around my mind

Or maybe my glass of loneliness

Toying with my sense of what’s real

Some things won’t leave me alone

-

My memory sits next to me

Squeezing teasing kisses in time

As feelings dealt replaces words

And in the back the music stirs

All reflected in pool of tears

Some things won’t leave me alone

-

Where do I can I go from here

Came longing questions from my eyes

To part of me no longer there

Some things won’t leave me alone

-

Carry us to those mountain tops

Let our moment still fill the air

In you alive the Joy we share

Was music playing in my soul

And in that smile of her picture

Some things won’t leave me alone

      Raw emotions laid bare, for all to see.

      These are the words of a master poet.

      Tenderly rich with sorrowful memories of Joy.

      You are the poet master, Martin.
