By the Meadow, Upon the Horizon #darkness#writephoto

Note:

there are two different versions of the poem, version 1 is on the happier side and version 2 is most likely on a sadder note

 

Version #1

 

by the meadow upon the horizon
I think of you in my fragmented memories
over my splintered forgotten dreams
and shattered broken promises
oh, how they made me smile
smile in relief,
smile, just smile

 

by the meadow, upon the horizon
I remember you, as nature’s sounds
mingle sweetly in my head
I hear the melody like a street band busking
playing our song, the song that was once
the anthem of our hearts
oh, how they made me cry
cry in joy,
cry, just cry

 

darkness unfolds, by the meadow
upon the horizon

 

then, there was you

Version # 2

by the meadow upon the horizon
I sat down and grieve over
our fragmented memories
our splintered, forgotten dreams
our shattered, broken promises,
oh, how my heart cries
in desperation

 

by the meadow upon the horizon
I sat down and weep as i
listen silently to the
sound of nature like a
street band busking, playing
our sweet, tender love song
our song that was once
the anthem of our souls
oh, how my heart sob
in hopelessness

 
darkness unfolds
by the meadow, upon the horizon

 
still, no sign of you

  1. I enjoyed them both – the first one is more resigned to remember the happy times resulting in a sense of contentment with the situation while the second seems to dwell on the negative aspects with the result being sadness and regret…

  2. Both are so emotional and well-written, SweetMich!
    I like how you captured both sides. And we can all relate.
    Reminds me of an old song that says, “I’ve looked at love from both sides now…”
