Silent Agreement

i sit here haunted by the silent agreement we made
we never truly said goodbye
we
just
stopped

 memories
and
a photo that lies in my mind
are the only things i have of you

the photo is gone for good but it's forever burned in my mind

i see you clearly in it
 you are doing something mischievous
 trees around you
 a smile brought to your blue eyes

i wonder if you remember me taking that photo

a few short days
that's all the time we got
it was enough
yet i still want more

emotions for you are hard to explain 
i don't want to see you
but 
when i do i remember the fun we had
sadness washes over me as i try to grasp that we are only memories now

memories
a lost photo
and 
a silent agreement

...to never speak again
Much Love,
Vanessa

  1. Really interesting, I interpreted this as a friendship fading away or a summer love leaving. Lovely text!

    1. Took me a while to write it because I still don't understand my feelings about the situation.

    LOVE this. You reminded me of feelings I didn't know I'd had. Lovely poem.

  4. This is very sad, indeed-- this poem actually portrays perfectly the relationship I had with a friend who just moved away. :(

    xoxo Morning
