'Dear Past'
Poem
Title: IN HONOUR OF FIFTEEN

An in-depth 'Dear Past' Poem, about a person's past memories and present feelings. The Poem is called:

'In Honour of Fifteen'.


out of mind

yet hovering in the realms of

consciousness


if I block the thought of it

is it still a thing? I'm

suffering


silently sighing at sight

rewinding it further each

time


I refuse to acknowledge

the present; it is eery and

Alien



am I the only one who flinches

at the feeling? for trust this, it

stings


The sharpest stab

I'll take as a hug till you

sense


they say it gets better, but

the tunnel's getting darker by

recount


it only happens once, except with

you - over again, i can't

Recover.


cry me an ocean

because this face remains dry in

disbelief


still it's not a surprise

I knew it too well- I saw it

coming


who cares at distance yet at

familiar space its the deepest

tragedy


a hero's tragic flaw though

I believed you were knight and

light


pretense dances with

the most bountiful bliss: it was

liberating


you'd illuminate my feet and I'd

continue to allow you the place of

keyholder


a treaty wrote with unconditional

terms, a paper no-one actually

reads


yet paper can be torn apart

and so this document was

shredded


you get a kick from this life now

don't you? It's convenient and

pleasing


But here: don't think i miss your

seconds stuck in

Wishing


I see it all, thus I feel it all

and that is why this poem lays

alive


Look dear friend let's make a deal -

we'll cease when the clock eats

emotions...


for now they will remain as

fallen marbles, never

retrieved


out of sight & air, my darling

your business will forever be my

business.


but if ever this all / is out of mind

we know it's

out of scare
