This is in relation to the Daily Post Weekly Challenge: 1,000 Words. Out of the four photos taken, the one below appealed to me the most. Entitled “Contemplation”, it evoked a memory of my past – my first heartbreak and the birth of a poem based on this experience.
The Poet in Me Died
by Carl Galang
Words don’t make sense anymore,
The waves depart farther from the shore.
Emotions that were once all mine,
Decided to bury itself in time.
Promises now become lies,
Forever becomes a vague picture.
Tears start flowing from my eyes,
The truth now becomes torture.
Words now cease to rhyme,
Songs start to lose its meaning.
The light you once found in me refuses to shine,
I am now void of all feelings.
The heart now numbs and becomes sober,
Denying that thoughts of you still linger.
The questions still remain unanswered,
Nothings real until you realize it’s all over.
I crash and burn
Tired to hope and yearn
The heart and mind collide
The poet in me died.
