til death us do part

we were both watching in silence
that unfolding drama
of the two of us co-existing
in the same fraction of the same time-line…
but not with the same coordinates…
both of us with our hands on the latch,
none of us actually willing to close that door…
each of us ruling over a different half of this earth,
and both of us meant to never see
the same stars in the same sky in the same time together…
same sweet sorrow sheltered in our souls,
same words dwelling on our lips,
same silence shrouding the unhappened…
half-hearted we touched our share of pain
and told no one about it,
for fear of staining it with others’ thoughts…
but maybe next life, my love…

    ’til death’ is a sad and all to common story. The images you paint with your words… about co-existing in the same time line but with different coordinates, and neither willing to close the door… make it sadder still. As a poem, I loved it.

    Hey there Liliana – just to say a big thank you for your emphatic comments on my blog. Lovely to meet you. I couldn’t find anywhere to comment on the little ‘about’ bit you have, so I’m doing it here 🙂

    Beautifully written. Just lovely. Such a sorrow … how often do we share a love half-heartedly? … and then, nothing. And you have shown all the sad reasoning. Fine poem, Liliana. Poem on … we’d be the poorer without you.

    A very graceful goodbye (or at least a goodbye for now). you write well!
