taste of love, taste of tears


taste of love, taste of tears
too many years
left without you
if only I had known
you would not be here
pack rat I would have been
overflowing each drawer
cramming every space
clogging even the air
with only your scent
this room we shared

cellophane wrap my new best friend
sealed forever
with all I could save
such a ’save this’ list I would have
of  moments shared

kissed by you~@~saved
touched by you~@~saved
making love to you~@~saved
caressed by you~@~saved
your breath on my skin~@~saved
your whispers in my ear~@~saved
your scent on your pillow~@~saved
‘I love you’s’ each morning~@~saved
morning kisses goodbye~@~saved

taste of love, taste of tears
piling on more years
if only I had known
I would have found a way
to capture those moments
that I miss about you
enough to last my years

your smiles~@~saved
your laughter~@~saved
those sparkling blue eyes~@~saved
your arms holding me~@~saved
snuggling close watching a movie~@~saved
your fingers running through my hair~@~saved
home cooked dinners together~@~saved

I feel like I wasted it all
for your memories alone
to feel this empty space
leaves me with

nothing to taste…
nothing to feel…
nothing to smell…
nothing to see…
of you

all that I have left
when I think of you
salty tears
on my face

Love Asha

because I missed you so today, my love Johnny
Tell me dear, does the pain ever go away
I want to smile and laugh when I think of you
and not taste so many tears.

"nothing to taste… nothing to feel… nothing to smell… nothing to see… of you"—such a beautifully powerful poem of lost and yearning set to a perfect rhythm. Bravo!!

Very creative saved @ I also liked the picture and the colorful printing.How did you do that?

the color printing was easy, I posted it on my poem book site first, it has the option to color the font, then I copied it from there and pasted it here. I think you can do the same thing in whatever word document you have that allows you to color the font. and the picture was that of me and my love Johnny whom I lost and now watches down on me from above. love Asha

We are grasping for things we should have held on to. Memories like time slip though our fingertips like white sand on the beach. We can never really hold them for long. Good write.

Your heart and mind will always hold a special place for your loved one. The memories and special moments that you shared can never be taken away from you as long as you remember and live. I admire how beautiful and strong your love for him is. However I hope and pray that you will find a way to channel your love and energy into the present and future. It is ok to cherish what you had but don't let your desire for the past keep you from sharing your beauty and love. May God Bless and Heal you that you may move forward and be restored with new found love and happiness. God Bless You My Friend Love Randy

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
