"The Box"

A shocking, unexpected find in question

Trickling down the tracks of my spine;

I find a box, but calm to be angered

Towards the fiery beating of an angry drum.


Calm turned bitter cold; disagreeing on 'her' box of junk

"It’s garbage" she once claimed;

To another was for keeps and so it seemed

Rummaging, damaging, I’m asking, “Why?”


Tears from your eyes killing me by inches

But she has told you once; she didn't care.

It is in our home, a home we share

The inflicting box should be nowhere near.


An abstruse moment of insanity

The stabbing of my heart, tearing me apart

Your burning love for me where did it go?

You cried for the things that are long overdue.


I have to destroy, ruin into pieces; that's all I care

Dispose in darkness somewhere out there;

"I can't forgive you for this" is what you said

Remember that ‘forgiveness’, I have bargained not.


Tears fell like rain.

After the pouring was a moment of disposition free from tangled emotions.

I love you, Sweetheart...
I love you, Sweetheart... | Source

Purple markings, discoloration from force

T’was no flower power pushing me down;

I was pained you know, but I didn't mind

Loving you is a feeling too overwhelming inside.


I feel no regrets to the find that led me to

I feel no remorse to the damage done;

I have authority for it, serves justice to one

Should not been in our house we both live in.


Remorseful shame, soft breaths whispers exchanged

Acceptance in silence and so, time will heal;

Embraces, kisses, the gentle touch of your hand

Seem not sufficing dismantled hearts of two.


My tears were like burning raindrops

The unwelcoming dispute had me aching;

We had a great, matchless start to begin

One discovered box got us both in vain.


I love you, sweetheart, you know it's true

The struggles I’ve been, only you see it through;

I don't know where our future channels

Be it a dark forest, be it an ocean, or atop a rainbow bridge.


Together, let’s spread the rays of gleaming gold

The love we cared, let's keep it always aglow;

Let trust blaze in tranquility every single day,

For mutuality we’re blessed, not wasted away.

      You are right, aviannovice...and also can be discovered. 'The box' wasn't meant to be given a space in my basement, glad I stumbled upon it.

      Eh, epigramman! I'm blushing here. Your words will melt me. Thank you always for the good thoughts you send. Cheers and remember, always put your heart where you are! I think Lake Erie is one of the places on my 'wish list' to drive out to catch some sunset with my camera, that, if I am right. However, I lost my list, hehe. Oh yeah, I can always google. :)

      I like how you sign off each time, brings images in my mind. I like your style. Here's wishing you will finish your day a great way! Cheers from Scarborough...

      Hi Faith Reaper! It was an extremely severe moment that I haven't imagined would ever happen, and I'm glad that had passed. Anyhow, it made its contribution for me to write a poem :). On the other hand, everything is beautiful. Thank you for your warm and friendly words. Always, Tess
