Melancholy Memory

Youth from long ago Back when I was little And still in grammar school… Innocence I held puppy love I thought she was all that My whole world was for her… Gratitude Swiftly things went south Felt the pains of lost love Hurt was running rampant… Illusion Cried for many days I couldn’t digest pain I was lost within me… Destruction My heart is broken Finally I knew grief I felt it throughout me… Saddened love

    Sad indeed! Well done on working with the difficult restraints... with mine it kinda came out fragmented. These feelings of young love are bit foreign to me... still... your words are ample enough to take me the there.

    Reads as if you got caught in a heartbreaker's trap. Good write as usual Russell.

    Lovely thought provoking poem-- excellent descriptive of that first love lost. In retrspect I guess we all see our innocence at what would probably best remain just a memory.
