I’m using: Nutella ~ pencil ~ Beverly Hills ~ light ~ bottled water ~ file
They were submitted by: http://thethreegerbers.blogspot.ch/ (Confessions of a part-time working mom)
All the minutes, days, and years.
I search through every file about you in my memory.
I think back over all your quirks.
How you would only drink bottled water,
and never a single drop from the tap.
How you hated Nutella,
but loved hazelnuts and chocolate.
How you would only write your poetry in pencil,
and everything else in pen.
How you loved Beverly Hills,
but hated California.
How you always had to leave a light on in every bathroom,
but never any other rooms.
How you would go for walks every day but Tuesday.
That one still baffles me.
What is wrong with Tuesday?
Why not Monday, Thursday, or Sunday?
Your quirks always baffled me.
Sometimes they even annoyed me.
They were a part of you though.
I accepted them.
I loved them.
I loved you.
I want your quirks back.
I want you back.
I want to explore Beverly Hills with you,
while drinking bottled water.
We can sit in the hotel bathroom,
bathing in the light,
writing poetry with a pencil,
while feasting on hazelnuts and chocolate,
but no Nutella.
I miss you.
I'd do anything to have you back in my life.
I'd even go camping.
Yes, I said that.
I would go camping.
For you I would do anything.
I would do everything.
Please come back.
Don't stay gone.
I. Miss. You.

Oh, this made me teary. I love the way you used every word; it's very sentimental.ReplyDelete
Thank you! :) I was feeling very sentimental as I wrote it!Delete
This piece is beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. I can literally feel your pain and love.ReplyDelete
My Muse for this piece (and many of my poems) is very dear to me. So much pain and love and joy and saddness in me, caused by him. He was, is, and always will be my Muse. He just contacted me last night actually. He is one of my greatest friends and greatest loves. :)Delete
So beautiful. Yeah. That's it.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Truly.Delete
"I would even go camping" sounds like you really loved that person…ReplyDelete
Not sure I'll ever say that!
Loved what you did with my words :-)
I am so not a camper. I have never camped, and it is likely I never will.Delete
If my Muse for this piece came to me today and asked me to go camping... I would pack up as much of my comforts (Lysol, Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, bottled water, baby wipes, etc etc etc) and I would go camping. I do love him. Always will. Some friends are just love. They aren't friends, they are love. That is him.
This was beautiful and touching. Thank you for sharing it.ReplyDelete
I was given words. They inspired me. I am so glad you enjoyed it! It was my pleasure to share it! :)Delete
aww a broken heart reaching out to a love lost...memories. Great use of the words by the way.ReplyDelete
