Did I Know You?

I saw the pain, in your hypnotic eyes
I took your hand, made you smile again
I was by your side, when you sulked
Never let a single tear
Even form in your eyes
Then you went away
Left me alone
A tear dripped
Sliding
Slow

Now
I feel
I knew not
Who you were dear
Not a word you told
Let that tear drip like stone
You returned, but not for me
Far away, you chose to remain
I did yearn, for your presence again
No more shall I wish, no more tears of pain

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
