"Bittersweet memories that is all I'm taking with me . . ." (From, The Bodyguard) ______________________________________ I'm just getting started- again, again I had to walk away from you we will be just shadows on the wall of time not meant to be a you and me no, sweet we forever . . . . my heart is already drowning in memories for you broke down my walls and found me waiting. . . helped me grow stronger and able to dream my dreams but we come from very different worlds oh, I will never, ever forget you . . . or the laughter, fun, and sharing we had you will always shake the ocean of my sleep and I will keep our love within my heart my heart is already drowning in the memories because you made me better, stronger I will hold you in my heart like a blanket of memory and now I am just getting started . . . with a new found life and path I set forth into the whirlwind that is this life and you cannot see my tears . . . we would only grow to hate each other in the end even though there was passion and lust that would have faded . . . because we come from a different place oh yes, life is a lighted window and a closed door You know, I could never fit into your world and you are out of place in mine . . . so, I'm just getting started with the new me I am ready to drink from the deep blue sky . . . ____________________________ September 18, 2019 Poetry/Free Verse/I'm Just Getting Started Copyright Protected, ID 19- 1182-048-02 All Rights Reserved.

A good job, which made me reflect on one particular relationship that you wished would last but knew it never could. I heard of her passing just the other day, and your poem let me relive the days and conclude just the same as you. What more could a poem achieve?

If you don't mind me saying so, this made me feel a bit queasy. The way you depicted emotions throughout this piece and the sorrow of it all makes me tear up a bit. Powerful piece, Dear <3

WoW! BW, When I tell you I liked this, is somehow not enough. You took the theme in direction that seems unexpected( at least to me). Sometimes I am so naive because I feel love can get you through anything. But does it? Coming from different worlds can be great in the beginning. But is it enough when newness wears off? I see you placing well with this fine piece. I wish you the best of luck in the contest. PS, I loved the film bodyguard and Whitney Houston. Have a wonderful day my friend:-) Alexis

Alexis thank you for the wonderful comment. I love that movie so much and Whitney"s voice was so magical, her death too soon. I hope John likes my poem too.
