four years

lying in the tangled white sheets
hair mussed i can still feel your touch
where you loved me and i loved you.

your scar on the side of your cheek
a piece of shrapnel embedded
you said you'd come home in a week.

it's august now come september
four years exactly you've been gone
your heart forever within her.

    four years, four ever, I agree with Richard, you read this sad poem, and well your thoughts just linger, well done!

    The title hurts once the write is read.. This pain has now lingered four years. Obviously this girl has felt and counted each day, and all of them felt like eternity. Robbed of her joy in living she now just exist and there seems to be no hope of a different future. Robbed of lover's dreams she is left in a mystery of unknowns only to count... Forever! LM, I loved your moving and mysterious work!

    I can feel the contrasting emotions that flow from the first to the last stanza, Lynn...from contentment to sadness. Unfortunately the final line suggests that he has found a new love. There must be lots of unanswered questions that tick inside the mind! Regards // paul

    Aww... Reminds me a bit of my song - She stopped loving him today. Some never get over a loss

    Sad write Lynn. Also a deep write leaving the reader wondering what has happened to him. Is he away-still in the military, maybe? Has he left? Has he died? Each possibility invokes its own unique feelings and how you feel about this person. Very nice.

    Hi Lynn, a short write but full of emotions. Once more you find beauty within the sadness and it is weaved into your write. Excellent work as always Lynn. You make the heart sing with your writes, whatever the emotion the heart sings and emotions come forth as one reads. You bring to life, in vivid imagery the pictures you put forward through your words. Your gentle words sing into the mind. There is always beauty in your sadness. This has to be a seven Lynn. Hugs....Mike. XX
