Daily Prompt: Gone

via Daily Prompt: Gone


Gone… a year
filled with languid days of conversations leading nowhere… the best kind
those that rise and fall like a memorable melody
peppered with silent interludes, the mind ruminating
over words and phrases sinking gradually into the psyche
to be retrieved and mulled over and savoured long after
the departure of companions leave a lonely void of hours and minutes

Gone.. a year
drowning in melting glaciers of hope
sweeping away happiness in a tidal wave of anguish
agonising days passing in slow motion
December’s shore ever distant
no end to suffering and
the promise of a better tomorrow receding fast

But now, all that went before is
and all that is to come
