The Last Love Letter To the West

         I can't recall 
       the day you left
  Empty words going west

~To: The West Coast~

My love, my sweet love -- my soulmate
I will cherish our time, with the sun
My love, my friend, my lover
Today we part, on this day June 3rd 15

My love, my sweet love -- my everything
On this day, I will take the long way home
On this day, I will look back and smile
To know it was not a dream

My love, my sweet love -- my true love
With this pen, I write this letter, 
My bed now knits a different sweater, 
Preparing my linens for darker weather
I want you to know, I'm writing this with a swollen heart
It was never you, it was I who grew apart
Patience kept you warm when I was cold
Every night, I cried, I tried to feed you my dreams
My hollow soul sat like a fool under a heavy cloud 
Holding back, the needing of proceeding who I was

My love -- please forgive me
I was inconsiderate of us
I would lay without opening the windows of trust
Your smiles I wiped away with my faults
However you stayed, you watched, 
You meant to kiss and stop the pouring rain 
You kept strong, holding my hand, 
When everything around my life persisted to perish
You soaked every time I stormed, 
I regret, when I refused to let you touched the women in me

My love -- it was never you
I was broken before our hearts met
Like a villain and a thief, 
You took my diamonds in hopes to see them shine again
Your demons found a way into the shadows of my life
Trying to complete what you could not see
You could not feel, still you believed in me
My dreams, you held me close, loving who I am

My love -- you are the sunrise the sunset
Your limbs kept me up when I would fall
I will miss the touch of light in every stare
Thank you for not looking my way, the day you left
I did not want you to see the mask I used to cover it all
Pretending, I was strong when I was weak
Knowing I had fallen in love with you
Forever yours, 

~From: South Texas--

    I'm getting my office together also for soon I'll be starting my halloween poems, I know a little earily, but in this way I don't have to shove so many ideas together in such a short time period, you know I did all those halloween writes last year in two in half weeks, I don't want to blow my mind this year, so I'm starting earily, lol I think it will be for the best, I had five paid vacation days left at work, so I'm taking one a week for five weeks, and getting organized, cheri

    Dearest Linda Sorry I have not been on much lately but I've been working on house renovations, painting, hanging shelves, ect. I go to work come home and start working again until it's time to go to bed, oh what fun kiddo. Well how have you been my friend, and how is the grand baby, bet he's getting big and cute. My grand-girls will be coming over next week to stay with me, one or two nights I am looking forward to that. It's great being a grand ma I spoil them then send them home, lol

    Dear Poet destroyer It's hard to reveal our inner self to anyone, but to those we hold most dear it's exspecially hard, because they matter the most to us, behind our masks of illusions lies the tender side of ourselves, that which we guard the most, our soft under belly of humanities weakest point, where hurt and pain can destroy us and leave us nothing but a ruin, you expressed this so well and with such heart my friend wonderful job, cheri

    you are such a fascinating writer.

    hey, you are getting lots of great comments on this one. So awesome, PD.
  1. Date: 6/19/2015 2:55:00 PM

    You’re amazing…I like the way you express yourself. You hold nothing back and because of it, you emotion just naturally flows out from every word. You are truly a poet in every way and with concern with the message, accepting where a problem lies is already the best possible leap forward and as Scarlet O’Hara from the movie “Gone with the wind” would say, “Tomorrow is another day” The miracle of a bright future is all around us, it is up to us to choose.
