*Final piece for this () series of poems*
Benefits of tonal shifts
The pressure encapsulating my heart
Dispersed, harnessed and reversed
From a dark pigment to an everlasting glow.
If I am to continue, on this journey
Darkness volleyed my way …
Love is all I need strive to return
From my end of the court, to yours.
To be who I need to be,
I need to acknowledge; let go,
The phantom pain…
We were not meant to be
And that’s alright…
We embrace love in different ways
And hate you, I will not, instead
I will reflect on our triumphs;
Our cherished moments.
Unveiling my humanity, a rare sight to see
But, for you, I will
“You meant a lot to me
For real this time.

love is tough and to finish with a simple goodbye and lesson learned which seems to me that the higher road was taken by you, is a miraculous thing. Leaving the dark behind as the light in front is always waiting with open beams 🙂 nicely done Michael, nicely done ❤
You taught me how to harness the light my friend, thank you 🙂
We press on! ❤
onward Ho! to the stars and beyond ❤
Lovely poem, Dante.

Beautiful ending. Seems like you gained a lot more than you lost in the way of a great lesson of understanding. 🙂
Thank you Nel 🙂 🙂 🙂
loved it…btw wordpress had once again unfollowed your blog! ugh!
Thanks Neha! Is that due to a glitch or something? Haha
I don’t know it’s wordpress being wordpress …just a few days ago it had somehow unfollowed a bunch of others…:/
You might need to raise it at the WP forums, those guys are usually very helpful with technical issues…also, you might not be the only one facing that problem, I always get crazy glitches here and there 🙂
Strong stuff, deep thoughts- loved it😊
