Where?...

                                            Domenico Fetti  1589-1623


WHERE?

Where am I in your mind,
a scab that hasn't dried up yet?
Are you still brushing that flake away
or is it only my fancy,
my ego, that you even remember?

Am I a faded scar
whose depth you can't see anymore,
a washed-out clue to nowhere,
a name on the tip of your tongue,
similar to someone you knew,
but not a memory you would bank?

Where are you in my mind?
You are the promise
before the wound,
the hand that clasped
before letting go,
the step you took
ahead of the fall,
a selective remembrance
only I seem to have.

Wonderful imagery! Sad to think of one person being scarred while the other has moved on, oblivious.

Hi Jingle-
I so appreciate being invited to join Thursday Poets Rally Week 36.I feel that I'm becoming a poetry machine..not so bad! I'm starting a new project, in addition to doing Magpie Tales on Thurs and may have some difficulty in commenting on 18 extra bloggers..

So how can I do it all???Because it's you who asked, I will give it some serious thought...thank you so much!

So earthy and romantic. Perfect image, too. Nice, Lyn!

Lyn said...

Hi Tess-
Thank you..love the painting too.. those Florentines really had that touch!!

What I like most are the questions. Where am I in your mind and where are you in mine? I will be turning that over and over in my brain tonight. Excellent poetry.

Lyn said...

Hi Butternut...
Guess we're lucky when we can see eye to eye! Thanks for dropping by and your lovely comment...

There is such sadness in this, Lyn. I agree with Vicki's comment.

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
That's the truth.. different depths of feeling..but still wishing...that time of the year, I guess...
