Poems, Charms & God’s Vineyard vii

we started off as friends
spending time and sharing common fancies

over time the passionate relations turned into intimate engagements
mornings, afternoons, evenings…
whenever we could steal moments to get wrapped up in our sensual cocoon

now that a few years have passed
since we severed our ties
I am hopeful that you’ve been blessed
with all you’ve ever wanted out of life

and by now any feelings born of our memory should be lost to you
not in any way callous for I know it is true for me too
on most days, but on others, the remembrance I cannot seem to lay to rest

because we shared a connection I had never before felt
one that holds especial significance
since for me it gave meaning to the idea of romance
even if it’s something I may never again experience

still, those feelings – unique to our love
will always be with me

  5. This is so beautiful and it touched me….because my heart is currently aching, this piece made me cry. I was already feeling what I felt, but these words….that’s the final thing that broke this dam or tears…..
