Holding Onto Figments

All Poems

Holding onto Figments


Dreaming of you

Crystal eyes so blue

Freckles spotting

Dimples frolicking

As we lived-



Memory collapse

Domino relapse

One problem-

Two problem

Who to blame,

So much shame

Guilt is built

Seeps into foundation

Creates devastation

Love swept away

Like a ship from its bay

Tried to weather the storm

But the damage was born

Nowhere to harbor,

Why even bother?

The nightmare shifts

Stirring from the crypts

The love we had before

Appears in full adore

Reaching out to grasp

My mind stalls the clasp

Waking up screaming

What is the meaning?

Seeing you

Those eyes so blue

Frolicking dimples

And spotted freckles

You vanished from my life

Now I lay here in torment

To only lament

And try to grasp

To clasp

The figments of our love-

That was my life.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Hello everyone =).  My name is Josh and I enjoy writing and thinking outside the box.  I have just begun the journey of writing poetry and am enjoying it immensely!  So far my first two poems are classic end word rhyming schemes; however, I enjoy open style the most! Take care and have a wonderful day!

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
