Mile

Drenched all over and pupils soaked
Down, this season, a nostalgic walk
A storm, within, of emotions cloaked
Remnant of treason remains to stalk

Contemptuous breach of a covenant shared
You drifted away to regal sounds
Calamity befell less fortunate, spared
My suffering, apparently, knows no bounds

This ride, in ways, is new to find
Each step drawn deeper, I deign
Tears of heaven and mine, combined
Abridged, somewhat, sorrows reign

Sinking daylight, hopes relinquish
Fading mirage intent on proving
Tranquil drive allures to vanquish
Keeps the undead, however, moving

Each moment spent, not unremembered
Each rise, and fall, is but a smother
And soul, from body, is when dismembered
By the side of you, will rest another

Note: This can be read as a reply to "Deliverance"

    OOOH, that last line is so sad, a treason to break a heart. A wonderful story - makes me wonder if based on reality in your life. I find most of mine touch on something going on in mine. Good to hear from you dear friend! Hugs to you

    "Keeps the undead, however, moving." Great line. And the last two are Universally Transcendental. Much enjoyment. daver

    I guess we couldn't write unless we had the full range of emotions and could interpret what we see. You are unique dear friend in your feeling and seeing Hugs, Lizzie :)

    You can't hold on to someone who doesn't want to be held but, take comfort in the fact that sun always follow the rain.
