Saudade – the presence of absence, or who Wikipedia explains it:
Saudade is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return.
Diamonds trying to outshine the dark, but
Only light can make them spark.
Novelty has worn off
Too many times we’ve gone soft.
Ingrained, but never imagined in our wildest dreams, how we are
Growing together, and secretly falling apart at our seams.
Nothing can contain our lust
Other than the chains that must
Reign us in, and keep us caged;
Endlessly devoted to a love that hasn’t aged.
Millions of thoughts keep us apart;
Emotions and memories – forever locked away in my heart.
Right and left, up and down this
Leftovers of a unique love.
One time memories.
This one is exclusive on this blog. Nowhere else you can find it. Feeling spoilt? Well… You should. You are something special and you matter. And I am in a manic mindset. Yay me…
Little known truths
Of love. Loss.
Vulnerable. Almost unbearable.
Empty heart. Heartbroken.
Words lick my skin
Inside. Craving the sin.
These truths became fantasies
Heaven weeps. Lost minds?
Yielding strength. We gave up.
Old wounds become new scars.
Untouchable thoughts. Forever hidden memories.
(Dedicated to my best friend who passed away two years ago. He shared the Thin Lizzy song “still in love with you” with me one night. (Sharing music was our thing.) I listened to that song earlier and that’s what inspired this poem.)
