Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

When The Feeling Is Gone

touching the sand 

 Bay-bay, Roxas City, Philippines. January 30, 2008

 

 

I tried to dip my toes in the water,

To try to re-live the past;

To check if the feeling is still there,

But the magic is gone.

The things that used to remind me of you

Has become just ordinary things as they were,

For they are.

Back to the way they used to be.

 

I used to see your face in the flowers

Now I only see petals.

The cotton clouds in the sunny skies

Don’t form to spell your name anymore ~

Not even the stars.

 

kisses in the breeze gone

Bay-bay, Roxas City. Philippines. January 30, 2008

    

 

The arched sky ceased to echo your memories like before,

I don’t feel your kisses in the breeze anymore.

 

I’m sorry,

But I think we lost the magic.

  

 

I didn’t feel the usual thrill

In my return;

I didn’t feel your presence

When the brines caressed my toes,

And stopped to yearn for your embrace.

The sands even failed to tickle the soles of my feet

Like your thoughts

Unable to summon up my fancy.

Archives in my heart

Boracay Island, Philippines. January 26, 2008

So now I gather the sweet ruins

From our past

Becoming just part

Of my valued collections.

They are safe in a folder

In my memory;

You are treasured in a vault

In my heart as ever.

Only now you belong

To the archives.

  3. Nice to see you back after returning your “Papang” back to HIM. Thank you so much for sharing your emotional grief with us here. It takes effort to share such things with people. This poem of yours says so much about feelings, changes in people, changes in your inner self, and of course moving on with life storing only sweet memories inside. And yeah! have to mention here that Phillipines is such a lovely place seeing the pics here.

  9. Hi Marvin!

    I’m glad to see you back and hearing from you again. I’m a bit sick today – got bad colds. The temperature here in Chicago had drastically dropped. My body is adjusting to the cold weather again.

    Hope you are fine.

    I wish you well.
