LOST IN THE WATER

 

There is a part of me still there

with you

below the bridge
by the river
smiling

as the water rushed past us
and time flowed through us.

There is a part of me there still

in you

below the water
by the bridge
drowning

as time washed over us
and the river trickled onwards.

There is a part of you still here

in me

standing still on the bridge
and moving, like the water
through time

while the river never considered us.

There is part of you

in me, still

no matter what bridge I stand on
no matter what waters I drown in
no matter the time I am lost in.

There is a part of you,
there is a part of me

still

watching me from the waters I gaze into
to find reflections of where we lost our course.

    It is hard to separate yourself from a memory, from a love, from the past. I find myself struggling with this same feeling of the past haunting me every day. I’m new on this site. I love your poetry thus far, and your pictures fit so well with the poetry. If you have a chance to check out some of mine, and give me critique, I’d appreciate it thank you,
    Alexandra

      Thank you Alexandra. I guess the past is the one thing that states exactly who we were at the time and who we stood next to. It’s the present and the future that is much more unclear.
      I would love to check out your blog and promise to come by and read you. So glad you stopped by.
