Hello, dear friends!
Sometimes love can be so close yet so far away. Too often we fail to act, and isn’t life all about timing?
This poem tackles the notion of love lost – and the intensity of that feeling. That endless regret over endless years.
It also incorporates the mythical allusion to Eurydice. If you are unfamiliar with the story of Orpheus & Eurydice, check it out by clicking on the link.
Nobody can break your heart like the ancient Greeks.
I hope you truly enjoy this poem. Please let me know your thoughts and feelings in the Comments Section below.

love comes so close
i can smell the sweetness on her neck
the fullness of intent on her lips
vestige of a touch
the echo of a familiar voice
lost in tumult like Eurydice
loves comes so close
i honor her through inadequate words
heart’s memory beats soft ‘gainst my chest
‘cross all these endless years
