For Guy

(It's important to know the pronunciation of the name GUY for the last line's rhyming effect. Guy was my first "awesome" love, and his name is pronounced GEE.)

since so long ago

you've shown up time and again

in my poetry. . . 

hundreds have known you through me.

If only you knew, dear Guy.

Untainted, unacquainted. So far back in memory. The truth of what is never known is for no one to see. But deep there in your heart of hearts dear Andrea. A beautiful picture you have painted.

I don't think so, S.O. I can't even figure out how to track him down. He is from Quebec.

Well, the brought the emptiness of a heavy feel completely home or knocked it out of the ballpark, which ever you prefer because you delivered. In a few lines you brought more than a little of Guy to me. Love ya ... CayCay

True, there will always be someone close to our heart. But once married, that person evaporated. Enjoyed your poem. HUgs

Awesome, Andrea, we do have a very touching person we've carried in our lives. I use to, until I met my husband.

That was nice Andrea. It's funny how some of those old flames to seem to appear in our poetry from time to time. Best wishes in the contest
