Search for meaning

By: Linda M Crate


i find it so hard
to let you go
you were a piece of my soul
i was never meant to lose
my heart cannot forget
the chaos left behind
in your wake,
and i know our eyes face forward
for a reason;
but you make me look back
orpheus warns me not to
we silly humans
repeat the same mistakes because
sometimes we have to learn
on our own terms—
i don’t know why i was so foolish
took for granted that you
would forgive me,
but you could not and i understand
some hurts wound too deeply;
i was an idiot for losing you
maybe remembering
is my punishment for regarding you
so lowly.
