bridesmaid

i won’t be leaving here with you
nor will you be staying with me
for any longer than you see fit
that is just the way of it


it is the silent refrain of my being
i won’t be leaving here with you
but i will stay, until this song is done
as your ceremonial chosen one


no, this won’t be my last time
though it is the first time
i won’t be leaving here with you
shh, now, darling. this is what i do


i see it in your eyes, our times
drawing to a close. please don’t mind
the tears they come, they go, it’s true
i won’t be leaving here with you

  1. ..wow… you hit 3 birds in one stone… how creative you are for doing quatern, poetics & magpie in one shot… great… your refrain speaks of promise that's so notable… enjoyed it… smiles…

  2. Thank you,Kelvin! I was lucky that everything fell into place to make this poem happen. It was originally supposed to be a stand alone piece for Poetics but I procrastinated and wow! It paid off. This time. 🙂

  3. I like your quatrain and use of repetition. You tell the tale unapologetically and with confidence. I like that, too. You allow the reader to see a different life, a different kind of possibility. I like that most of all.
