Heartache Blues – April 1

“Maybe, we can find a way to be together” reaches my ears, but my soul cries out. 

It can’t be forced; we either love each other enough to drop everything

Or we don’t and we each walk our own path without the other by their side.

“Maybe, we can find a way to be together” reaches my ears, but my soul cries out.

On my mind these words keep circulating and reliving heartache.

Why must there be a struggle to be in each other’s presence.

“Maybe, we can find a way to be together” reaches my ears, but my soul cries out.

Golden days of remembrance resurface on the darkest of days making us blue.

Leaving us wishing we had seized more sweet moments to survive these blues.

“Maybe, we can find a way to be together” reaches my ears, but my soul cries out.

My soul bemoans this heartache blues.

Knowing that the last time we loved each other was the last time.

The poetry prompt asked that a music genre be written in the title and then a poem written to follow suit. This time I chose the Blues.

    The repetition works well here to feel the depth of it. But oh that closing line, that’s the final shovel full. Miss you, welcome back!

    Loved this one!!! Read it a few times and as I read it again I slowed down pausing between repetition and wow did it sink in! Thank you!!!

  3. You don’t know agony until you find yourself unable to be around the one you love, Brava, great Indigo Blues!

  4. The repetitive question and varied answers worked well. Solitude isn’t so bad.

  5. those maybes are a shred of hope but the clinging lover is already drowning – well written!

  6. Oh this is unbelievably deep and poignant!

    Nice statement and response, part of indecision.

  8. The futility of parting … maybe there is no way.

  9. We only recognize the “last times” in retrospect … and perhaps that’s just as well.
