Open Mic Night

Welcome to Open Mic Night – a place where we are all free to share our work (so, if you have anything you want to share please do πŸ™‚ ). I hope you like the piece I’m sharing with you tonight…

Memories remain

Cruel, bitter twist of fateΒ 

Did you have to love me?

Why did you love me?

Why did you yearn for me?

What did I do to deserve your touch?

You are not here

And I miss you so much

When the nights leave me lonely

I lay wide awake

I think of your words

And I dream of a life

A life that could have been

A life that will not be

A need that grows stronger

With each passing day

Force it to die –

Watch it melt away

But though our hands

Will not be entwined

Our hearts will beat together

Our souls joined forever

Forever in time

Why did I have to love you?

Why did I love you?

Why did I yearn for you?

My tears have been bitter

But my thoughts are of you

My thoughts make me smile

Because they are of you

To utter the words β€˜I love you’

It is so bitter-sweet

There is little to gain

But I do so love you

Yes, I adore you

Forever in my heart

A memory you’ll remain

  1. ‘A memory you’ll remain.’ I completely feel the longing here. It’s properly expressed.


  2. Would be a good poem for a open mike. I did a lot of poetry readings in the early nineties. I like the gathering of writers and poets. Always a opportunity for good conversation. I plan on next year to read at poetry reading again. Thank you for sharing the excellent poem.


  3. I loved reading this out loud. Beautiful! πŸ™‚
