Lost Love Poem

Unable To Let Go Of You

This poem represents how I can't let go of the thoughts of someone I used to consider my soulmate, best friend, love of my life. Now that they are no longer with me and have moved on to a better life, I decided to write this poem.

Thoughts At The Ocean

Published: March 2017

I stand on this soft, white sand.
My feet becomes frozen,
And I have no will to move.
Everything reminds me of you.

The sand reminds me of your touch.
The wind, your words,
The sun, your smile,
The stars, your eyes,
The birds, your freedom.

For a month
I just stood there,
Reminiscing every single prayer, song, poem,
Played over and over
By the cherry lips
I've never tasted before.

Every wave
That came by
I called your name,
Sometimes restlessly,
But always in vain.

No matter how tight
My mother pulled me away
From this spot,
And no mater
How tired and worn out I became,
I couldn't shake the thoughts of you.

Some would see this as loneliness,
But how can that be
If your memories keep me company?

The end of this poem really struck me. It reminded me of sadness I have once felt before but keep sheltered for my own sake. It hurts me deeply when I know people have something as heavy as this weighing on their soul. Something like this is what destroys the very essence of what makes us human. It's tragic to think that people leave an imprint as such but can go on with life without a single care.
