WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO LIVE WITH SOMEONE WHO’S NOT IN LOVE WITH YOU?

—THE DARK DAYS—

By Charles Robert Lindholm
 

Why would you want to

live with someone

who’s not in love

with you?


it is a simple question

but I never could reply

I never found the answer

to the question why?
 

I stood in the debris

of bits and pieces

and memories

scattered about
 

I looked for the light

at the end of the tunnel

that I hoped

would lead me out
 

out of the heartaches

and tears

and unfounded fears

that kept looming just ahead
 

yes, time’s done it’s healing

though my heart keeps concealing

memories that hide in my head
 

the Dark Days have past

and I’m happy at last

but some questions

and memories remain
 

Reminders of “The Dark Days”

  1. Sometimes the dark days are there to lead us to the light Charles. I am so pleased that yours has begun to shine again. There will always be questions but we can answer them from a much better place. Nice poetry.

    1. Ahh, You are so right about that! And we appreciate it more when they are over. I debated with myself whether or not I should publish these but thought I surely wasn’t the only one that has gone through them and it might be something that others can identify with and help those in the middle of it and be good for those who have gone through it to reflect back and be thankful it is in the past!

      Sometimes it takes a number of years before we can look back with a clearer view of things??

      As Always, thanks Davy for coming by and commenting!

      1. No problem Charles and I agree the experience makes us better people. I am going to be hanging out with you this Thursday if that’s ok with you. I’m even doing you your own T shirt.
