Our Last Night

For Timothy Lee, the Best of Me
Since our first night, I have dreaded the last, thus my passion tightly fashioned clasp. You are my one safe harbor, my refuge, my cure for stress overload and pressed blues. No matter any day’s shatter and stews, at night I am consoled right beside you where your skin soothes me secure again and our wrapped limbs re-thread joy’s ends. Some tomorrow’s sorrowful horizon scripts our final intermixed, heart snuggle. I cannot help but hope that it is me who first dies and avoids solitude's struggles. Our bed of blessed satisfaction defined, would uncover woe for the rest of time. Come the end of nights molding with you, comes the end of our love's active value. ...

Sometimes waiting for the last embrace makes living in the present intolerable, Cay Cay. From experience, I can only suggest living in the moment. Your heartfelt poem touches on a feeling that many have experienced. Very beautifully written. Sort of free verse mixed with a bit of rhyme and I like that. It works well and I'm sending best wishes for the contest. Hope you enjoy the holidays! Hugs, Carolyn

I am very much an advocate of staying in the moment, but the human in me surveys fears now and again, and this is one. It's better to have danced, than to never have known the feel - I believe that, too. Thank you for such sweet comments. All the best ... CayCay

They say all good things must come to an end and I don't buy that for a minute. Though I do know all things end, the good ones last in our memories as your poem will in mine my friend.

CayCay, first let me wipe my tears, wow what an emotional write, I can tell you from experience that the end of love is shattering, that empty bed is a dark void, well done and a FAV for me ~

I can't imagine how you cope, I think of you often, your story (as little as I know) and your coping. Your journey has a purpose, unique to you and, I believe, as long as you're true to your heart, you are exactly how and who you are meant to be. Some day we can go home, where there is no pain. All the best to you, all the days ... CayCay

Carole, I am indeed blessed and so grateful, but girl, I did not get it right the 1st, 2nd or even 3rd time. As long as you are alive, love can and does happen. Glad you enjoyed the poem and it is always good to see you. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
