Handprints

Tracing the contours of faded lines
From a memory left in shadow
Filling thoughts with memories


Chasing the image left behind
From a heart that's left alone
Filled with hopes so bittersweet


Handprints on the window
Leaving trace evidence behind
Handprints on a pained soul
Left to fend as days go by


The subtlest reminder
Of what's been lost to time
Hold hope somehow tomorrow
Can make this yesterday rewind


Handprints on the window
Leaving trace evidence behind
Handprints on a pained soul
Left to fend as days go by


She left her handprint on my window
As she said her last goodbye
She left a shadow on my cold soul
As she was leaving me behind


Handprints on the window
Leaving traces of her behind
Handprints stained on the soul
Leaving memories in the mind

this is beautiful ROC

I especially love the part near the end "the sublest reminder..."

there's a typo in there somewhere,

I gave you a hint (^.-)

That's just

My new word for broken-behind-alone, or maybe it was just a bad rhino... :p (I keed I keed)
Handprints and ink, oh the memories
See, look, your epicness assigned me a word of the day, in your absence...lol
I'm glad you liked your vicarious creation

it's those haunting traces encroaching in spaces

that leave us to  have to face

handprints all over our personal place

in recesses, deep in our mind

some pleasant ,some  so very unkind 

those handprints to haunt us in soul

just don't seem to want to  ever let go.

handprints, handprints handprints

left on bleeding,but scarred souls.

leaving haunting traces in personal spaces

handprints handprints handprints

Nice...really nice, my friend. 


...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. "

Thank you

It's nice to see you on here again. I've been gone awhile too, leaving only tattered remnants here and there, until I found a small semblance of balance

Handprinted Soul

That is one imprinted memory. Sad for the leaving, well said in the remembering - A -

Indelibly inked

And faded simply to trace. Though, a soul never loses its scars.
