She had flown.


He was saddened

she could

take to the air

without him.


She was disappointed

at how little

he seemed to care.

    The last line stanza for me is quite vague. Was she disappointed because she learned he cared so little that she decided to move forward? Or was she disappointed because in the end she learned that despite the fact that she had moved, he seemed not to care about this.

      Neither. Or one or the other. Or both. That is the trouble with poetry. And actually, I’m not sure myself. Smiles.

    It’s a strange place. The kind part of us wants life to go on without us; another part of us is a bit sad to know it does.

        Deep down I think you do, sometimes it is hard to admit. But everything happens for a reason.

          I try to be honest. Especially with myself. And in truth I thought I would suffer. But I have not. And the lack of pain bothers me as much as if my heart had been torn

            You know what they say ‘If you love something enough, set it free.. if it finds it’s way back to you then it was meant to be’ But if it doesn’t then take it as a learning experience. Sometime we see things more then what they really are, and once they are gone we realize the truth, which hurts.

              You might be right. But it is the lack of hurt (on my part) that hurts – or rather – disturbs. Time for sleep in England. Have fun.
