endless years

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.

endless years

love comes so close

i can smell the sweetness on her neck

the taste

the heat

the fullness of intent on her lips

vestige of a touch

the echo of a familiar voice

taken

from me

lost in tumult like Eurydice

loves comes so close

i honor her through inadequate words

my song

my tears

heart’s memory beats soft ‘gainst my chest

‘cross all these endless years

  1. This poem makes me think about people who find love in old age. Perhaps they have been alone for a long time and have given up on love entirely. Then, out of the blue, they meet someone as lonely as they are and something beautiful happens. Great poem Pat! 💞

  2. Simply written but cuts to the core. Brings back memories of my partner who died through suicide, and also my brother, who’s first anniversary was yesterday.
