Moving Day


mirror renass

Looking back into the mirror,

split personality mirror

a reflection of my past…

mirror brokennnn

The doors I chose to walk through

and the ones I closed too fast…

three doors

Messages I never got

letter bundle

and the ones that I received…

phone call

the ones I knew were just your lies

and the ones that  I believed

phone off the hook

all pour through my memory

like rain beating on my heart

RAIN

years are not the only thing

that have torn my dreams apart.

breaking up

and made me see the strength in me

as I gather them up with care

moving day suitcases

and move on to another day

memory alone

where I won’t find you there

Diane Reed

    Oh Diane this is so beautiful. So touching and heartwarming. I love the lines:
    all pour through my memory
    like rain beating on my heart

    Beautiful. I love how you match the words and the images perfectly. Brilliant!

    So true about our skewed perspective on the past and the present… I have to consciously work on that one.

    True, Diane. Seems like we’re always moving on even when we’re not ready to at times. Seems to just work out that way and probably for the best. I liked your poem and photo collage, especially the looking back quote.

      Pat,
      You got that right. Maybe we are more ready than we realize but our brains have to catch up with our hearts! ;)
      Hmmmm maybe another idea for another poem!

    Your soul … and your heart is so gentle … and full of motions.
    Love it, Diane …
    When I was young a met a man .. and I fell so deeply in love, I promised to write him a letter .. but I was so in love I couldn’t put a letter together .. I tired and tried .. but I couldn’t find the words, so Tommy never got his letter, and I still today regret that he never reviewed that message – he was studying far away from me.
    So I can relate so much to this poem.

    Great write! Wow, that’s why people remain stuck there. In God here is a promise: The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts. Thanks for having an ear hear Him.

    WOW! Your emotional expression and imagery in your poetry is some of the best I have ever read. And I’ve read Wordsworth, Frost, Browning, Shelly and some of the best.
    “Messages I never got
    and the ones that I received…
    the ones I knew were just your lies
    and the ones that I believed
    all Pour through my memory
    like rain beating on my heart”–this imagery is unparalleled. Robert Frost couldn’t have written this as well as you have. Rain beating on my heart. WOW!

      I am trying to get outta here but lol when I read this one I had to skip to you and hand you my heart! What compliments! Thank you! I wish the pics were actually mine so that when I go to write an acutal book of poetry to sell, I’d have em at my beck and call… But I love the linking photos to my poems! I think the pictures should get half the credit But it is like a FIX I get matching them… sometimes the pictues inspire the poems.. this one is from my Pieces of The Circle book that you are helping me on… Going to go in front of one of the chapters… As Keri is writing her journals… ya know, tie it all in…
      Thank you Steve you made my day!

        Diane, you are a gifted poet and I hope your work gets published some day. You express emotion and depth better than any poet I’ve read.

    ‘Messages I never got’- makes one wonder what if? And closed doors too. Guess one can only wonder and keep on living. Nice poem.

      Laxmi,
