The Last Love Letter To the West

         I can't recall 
       the day you left
  Empty words going west

~To: The West Coast~

My love, my sweet love -- my soulmate
I will cherish our time, with the sun
My love, my friend, my lover
Today we part, on this day June 3rd 15

My love, my sweet love -- my everything
On this day, I will take the long way home
On this day, I will look back and smile
To know it was not a dream

My love, my sweet love -- my true love
With this pen, I write this letter, 
My bed now knits a different sweater, 
Preparing my linens for darker weather
I want you to know, I'm writing this with a swollen heart
It was never you, it was I who grew apart
Patience kept you warm when I was cold
Every night, I cried, I tried to feed you my dreams
My hollow soul sat like a fool under a heavy cloud 
Holding back, the needing of proceeding who I was

My love -- please forgive me
I was inconsiderate of us
I would lay without opening the windows of trust
Your smiles I wiped away with my faults
However you stayed, you watched, 
You meant to kiss and stop the pouring rain 
You kept strong, holding my hand, 
When everything around my life persisted to perish
You soaked every time I stormed, 
I regret when I refused to let you touched the women in me

My love -- it was never you
I was broken before our hearts met
Like a villain and a thief, 
You took my diamonds in hopes to see them shine again
Your demons found a way into the shadows of my life
Trying to complete what you could not see
You could not feel, still you believed in me
My dreams, you held me close, loving who I am

My love -- you are the sunrise the sunset
Your limbs kept me up when I would fall
I will miss the touch of light in every stare
Thank you for not looking my way, the day you left
I did not want you to see the mask I used to cover it all
Pretending, I was strong when I was weak
Knowing I had fallen in love with you
Forever yours, 

~From: South Texas--

HI Linda, the emotions flow once more and when they flow in this fashion they do take all along with them.Your emotions are always so powerful and your writing is ever honest and true to the emotions you portray through your words. The sadness just reaches in and grasps the heart of the reader. The pain of your words does flow like tears cried as one does read. This is excellent writing Linda. You never have changed your style, i hope you never do, stay unique. A seven and a fave....Vlad.

Dear Linda A sad write but honestly done, sometimes it is better to move forwards than to dwell in the past emotions of regrets, and keep those precious memories of the good times, of the good loving, and meaningful moments, and here you've done just that with grace and distintion, cheri

Your titles are always amazing. Not many have the grace to say sorry and learn from the past. I love some of the lines here. A definite 7 and a fav to re-visit. Thanks for your wonderful spirit. Hugs, SuZ

Somehow, I feel that if you would have conceived and communicated these thoughts before you left, you wouldn't have. Sooo many amazing sentiments in this one Linda. Hoping you have a wonderful 4th.

Wanted to read the prequel to your latest write, only to find my comment isn't here. I assumed it went through, sorry about that Linda. One can never be more sincere than your words here. You bared your soul for everyone to see. A pity the love was not enough to overcome everything between the two of you. hugs!
