Leave a Whisper

One thing I must know before we go any further than this Words that must be sealed with a true kiss.. That when you leave and leave you must.. sorry-This is turning to more than lust: I ask you to leave a whisper in my ear An ending to this chapter,No sequel I fear. You didn't know I was awake when you slipped away I'm sorry you must leave ''don't go''''please stay'' No words of this nature may I say. ''Nor bring me any sense of senseless self'' They get to close and with this I can not permit Memories of the faded face lingering Thoughts I can not forget..... I could feel her breath upon my neck as she left me a memory; One that is fading tonight This- just one reason that I must write. Should have I pushed,pulled,fought for what I believed to be mine or continue to 'sleep' pretending tomorrow would be just f.i.n.e. This time wasn't like the others that voice could be my muse's muse I kept my silence silent,something I've begun to abuse. - If you feel your soul screaming at you with advice Do not hesitate,prolong,ponder-Never think twice- For in that time,your moment may have left,just dew,mist,simply gone Grasping for something tangible''hoping ear shall prolong'' Just leave a whisper so memories I will have to nourish a smile,it too needs help to be seen every once in awhile. Memory I do have,not of sight but sound.A beautiful whisper, A reminder to make life a little more profound.

this is an unusual topic and I enjoyed this idea of wishing to go back in time and have a "do over" Good one!

I wouldn't have done anything different...A good life lesson...These were some actual 'terms''Well worth it in the end

This is very good, in the second half of the poem you switched to "She" this confuses the narrative a bit, I would suggest you keep speaking directly to her through the whole piece. If you make that small shift you will end up with a truly special poem.
