Brokenhearted Sunsets

When brokenhearted sunsets soak the sky, she thinks of him and how she did not know those blissful kisses were his last goodbye as they embraced in summer’s twilight glow. She understands some days just end that way - when brokenhearted sunsets soak the sky - but wonders why he didn’t even say a single word! She’s left with just the WHY. Why give no warning, leaving her to cry for ages since the time the sky bled red? When brokenhearted sunsets soak the sky, she well remembers wishing she were dead. From time to time, she still feels so bereft, and even when she meets a decent guy, it haunts her still the way her first love left - when brokenhearted sunsets soak the sky. Written Jan. 28, 2018

So nice I think that word bereft is Yiddish My mom threw some at me once in a while Secrojene Means clumsy Parej means When someone is cutting your hair, she would say stay still, do you want a parej https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/yiddish-words/

Lovely quatern, Andrea, I believe in the soulmate concept and often wonder how much it would hurt when someone just leaves you with all the haunting memories...

Yes it haunts no matter what. It's hard to know what things will stick like that. I suppose that is a downside to being emotional and really falling in love with someone. The big ouch is always possible.

That unanswered question leaves a heart unreconciled. And leaves you all alone and scared just like a little child. Sometimes in life the years go by without another chance. Until God says it's time for you to get out there and dance. Good luck in the contest Andrea. Wonderful poem.

Hello Andrea, heart break is so --hard-- to get--over. It takes time to heal. She needs time to heal. Have a nice evening my friend.
