Wish you were here

WishYouWereHereEternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMindScreenshotOnThickIce.jpgIn my mind I had a friend in you

I never know the damage I do

Then I felt I was suddenly the cause of all your blue

you gave no sign and then suddenly

so much, I did not know any of that truth

you did not tell me

you did not tell me

and then suddenly you gave me all

and I could never give you enough

in return

and now I burn

in my own hell for whatever

I created that caused you to yearn

when all I did was make a lake of flowers

and I did not know you would there

drown.

Now I lost my friend

and all over pining for my wild

other-captain-

end.

I’ll never make it right

I’ve somehow perished your light

please just leave me

before I bring your buried stores

all the more blight.

But remember it was you

who reached your hand to me first

it was not first me

who reached my hand for better or for worse

I only grabbed your offered star-burst

held it to me like doves against my

burning heart

electrifying the wavering reeds of my hair

and then gave all I had

all I could give

all my friendship in

to try to save

this floundering

alongside love’s unsteady inland ship.

I thought we were star siblings

in the thick of it.

Just two like-souls

dreaming in a

wish bowl…

two pink oeils

in the vast void

of

lit.

    1. Jojo, thanks so much for this feedback πŸ™πŸ™πŸ’› wrote this poem early this morning, by the end it took on a life of its own and so I titled it by the same song which came to mind during the last few lines. Afterwards I wasn’t sure about the version I added from yt (video and screenshot) but seemed to fit somehow… and Veronica had just posted about selective memory so it seemed a sign. Anyway, thank you so much for your amazing support as always; much appreciated. πŸ˜šπŸ˜šπŸŒ»πŸ’•
