Does not look back

12 May


He knows she is slipping away.

The pauses are longer, the messages shorter.

He can feel the cooling of her heart in the May breeze that brushes his face.  He can see the waning of her desire in the shrinking moon. He can sense the lack of her attention in his empty dreams.

He will never be a victim.

Undercover of darkness he builds a boat from his words.

At dawn launches it upon the still and waiting, inky waters.

He does not look back.

    sigh….it makes me want to give whoever he is a hug…but he is likely too strong for that

    The youthful innocent tone is so charming…I cannot ignore you and love you at the same time… With the infinite patience of one who has learned to live broken, hopefully, he will await her. She has not gone from him, perhaps just a little delayed. xo

    I like this. Except that the first time I read it I turned the “He” into “She will never be a victim.” I wonder if both are poignant. I also love the “still and waiting inky waters”…wonderful writing imagery. And the picture, it is beautiful. I love your more pensive poems…perhaps that says more about me than you. Either way, I enjoyed this one.

    i am always left with a piercing ache for i breathe and break with each each word. there is only forward movement and may the tides push you ever closer to that and whom will ease all these aches for another far more appealing. x

      ‘quite enjoyed’ sounds a little ‘faint praise’, but thank you.

    Your writing is always so beautiful, always and ever intriguing to me. I am always taken back by how concise your writing is, but in the economy of words so much is said. Its quite a talent you have.

    Cheers to never being a victim. Hard to keep from being that at some point. I suppose I open my heart far too wide and often fall into that role, though I hate the word victim. I hurt though, and find myself full of regret sometimes, but I continue to keep my heart open, and persist in hope.

      One sets out with the goal of never becoming one. But aims are not always met.
      I hope you find happiness and thank you for the generous compliments

        I hope that you find happiness, as well. I always have nothing but best wishes for you. Thank you for yours to me.

    I am in oar of your craft…

    I shouldn’t think she will ever slip away, with writing like that to look forward to…

    Beautiful, yet I sense a bit of yearning left in the words that you write.
