She is Sorry for His Loss

She is sorry for his loss

Their love story written a little over a year ago, now in flames.

She has forgotten his face, his touch

And the way he cradled her in his arms at stolen nights.

She is sorry for his loss

Her paper heart now belongs to someone else.

Somebody else’s pen is writing on her skin.

Somebody else is drawing a smile on her face.

She is sorry for his loss

The pact that they made that she tore.

There are no promises, no more.

Be gone and don’t ever come back.

She is sorry for his loss

The lullabies that she used to sing to him are forever gone.

All the songs that she played are now for the ears of her beloved

Who is now sharing her bed.

She is sorry for his loss

The image of her walking to him down the aisle

Now only happens in his dreams

Forever kept and never coming true.

One thought on “She is Sorry for His Loss

    She is sorry…but still writing poems for him, and he for her. Love is never lost…it only hibernates for a while…until one realizes that true love waits the full length of the string. Most people would recognize that fact, and keep an eye on that string.
