So sad to be so close yet so far away, only one phone call
And we had to say goodbye, then cry, then again to fall
While still uncertain who would bring the curtain down
To cause another frown on my face at your unsure pace
In leaving with an intention of staying gone long enough
But now what are we to do when too few days remain
And the rain keeps falling and washing away my hoping
And my longing to belong to you yet again even in sin
Because you just mean that much to me ever to be free
But you simply will not pick up the phone to call home
And so I’m alone and weary, so close yet so far away

You poem is sad but well done, Jonathan!
Thank you so very much, Miriam. I was actually thinking about someone specific and I really did (and still do) feel sad. Well, this is one important reason I love poetry: It gives me an artistic avenue to express innermost feelings. Of course, you know what I mean! Your book of poetry is an excellent, beautiful example! Blessings to you!
I know, Jonathan. When you have a specific person in mind, it draws the real and deep feelings.
I love this saying,
‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Thank you for reading my book.
True words spoken from your heart, Jonathan when you are missing someone but that person will not respond. Yes and to take your thoughts and spill them out in a poetry, is so good.
How are you doing, Jonathan? Hope all is well. Don’t stay so close yet so far away!
Thank you so much, Kally. I was kind of out of commission for some weeks, but I’m better now, and I’m back on blogging! Thank you and blessings to you! 🙂
Thank you for your blessings, Jonathan. Look forward to more of your amazing works.
Thank you, Kally! 🙂
