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”

I want to be silenced with kisses

upon kisses that take away all the emptiness

in some loud downtown club

with glass and hope.

where we can’t even hear ourselves speak

because the music is more important

than conversation.

who wants to talk anyway?

about what? how miserable

life is, how hopeful you want it to be?

how people think all this is real?

how Ikea is lonely?

all this magic and no one to cast a spell

on me. all this truth and no one

to say it to. all these lies and no one

to bullshit to. I will always want you

and that is what souls do

when they connect, they have this

memory we can’t keep track of

and in the middle of the day

when you are on the way to

do this or that, you just lay

flat on your face in your car
