I Need a Change

I have so often tried to say goodbyes,
I tried my best to forget the past, but
Life is too cruel, my heart and mind sighs.
Change seems impossible, I'm in a rut.

Day after day, this soul breaking routine
Gone are sweet days of happiness and joy
Many events have happened in between
Our love, I assure you, none can destroy.

Yet, I know that something must now be done,
I need to breathe again soft, dewy dawn,
Not shut the door upon a setting sun,
Praying this winter sadness will be gone.

Leave this dark, empty sad-house and enjoy,
Walk, dance, swim and behave like a young boy.

Heh, heh. I've been there too, my friend. There comes a time when one just has to up and go... Or at least it sure does feel that way. (I've never acted on this feeling, …. ) Best wishes, my friend. ~ gw

Such a heartfelt sonnet Victor and I can feel the pain within it, but also know that we eventually have to move on, otherwise this sadness will destroy us. We will always have our precious memories to comfort us dear Vicfor. With kindest thoughts Ann xx

Lovely thoughts of opening another chapter of life.. you can never forget the past and those so dear.. but always carry them in your heart.. a change for bright sunshine and cool sandy shores are a right step. Thank you so much for reading my poem. Hugs Eve

A very personal sonnet, and i can understand your pain, it is difficult to overcome some things that happen to us in life... great ending and that is the right spirit!

The first step is to open the curtains and let the light in, and the next step is to open that door and feel the Vitamin D soothing your soul. Then the dancing and swimming can begin!

sometimes change can be is too short to slam the door in sunsets and beauty....sometimes living in a place where sad memories occur can make us stop enjoying the beauty of life....nicely penned Victor :) hugs

Hi Victor, Sounds like an excellent idea, wherever you go poetry soup will be waiting for you, you are part of us and we part of you. We are also selling our 2 homes and don't know where we will land - maybe the moon or mars! Awesome write dear Victor. Hugs, Jennifer.

My friend this great sonnet tells me that you and I have oft traveled down the same road. And as poets understand that what we have lived makes us what we are! I marvel at you sonnets and how true to poetry they are.. A fav and a true gem.....

Beautifully sad, unfortunately. I wish all the poetic strokes of your pen that so aptly and creatively deliver this feel would also make the last line easier to manifest! It is so hard and, once again, I felt the gray emotions that I do know, have met, reach out from your imagery. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
