Far Be It From Me

Posted on

 

to say I saved you

time has traveled

in dust deviled clouds

and I am not allowed

to speak of it

but here you are

beaming

and I’ve been meaning

to ask you

if you remember

the dark , the muffled glow

of my heart shattered in pieces

  3. Maybe it’s time for the savior to be saved, but heartbreakers rarely do that.

  4. Hard when in healing them, you weaken yourself. Then it’s starting over again, isn’t it. I really found resonance in this poem.

  5. Mish, your poem has given me much pleasure this morning. I love the lines:
    ‘time has traveled
    in dust deviled clouds’
    and
    ‘… I’ve been meaning
    to ask you
    if you remember
    the dark , the muffled glow
    of my heart shattered in pieces’
    has my bottom lip wobbling.

  6. “time has traveled in dust deviled clouds” Powerful words and imagery here. Relationships go through these dust clouds….and one partner often remembers them much more clearly.
    “Here you are beaming….” and this person seems to have forgotten or is oblivious to the pain caused.
    So much in this poem……relationships…..so many kinds of weather to weather!

  7. Ouch, this opens up many wounds… sober and elegant restrained way of writing.

  8. It’s hard to see lovers not as heartbroken as those with broken hearts expect them to be. Nice description of that encounter.

  9. A very moving write about the different realities people experience and the unintentional hurt it can cause 💜

  10. The emotions here sound very complex. It’s almost as if this is being said to a former lover who left and then thrived… much to one’s disappointment. Loved.
