    The Poem

    It sits there huantingly on the coffee table
    She wrote it for someone else years ago,
    but it's Staring into his reality, and he wishes
    he could look away , if only he were able.

    But Bolder than life it sits , grouped in a book
    with hundreds of other poets works,
    Reminding him of what was, a long time ago,
    in a place where their love  used to exsist.

    Time moves on, sometimes love fades.
    Becoming something renewed.
    Leaving behind all those things they never could say.

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

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