passing through

passing through the alleyways
kissing all the girls and boys
what am I to do here when
I cannot hear your golden voice?

nightfall comes to fill me up
with thoughts of you and cuckold’s pain
and I resolve, once more, no more
a resolution made in vain

the knot untied, the seal broke
we had our chance but now it’s gone
I search through all my memories
wonder where our love went wrong

and I can run or catch a flight
or take a ship to distant shore
there is for me no true escape
since you declared our love no more

passing through these alleyways
unmoved by the girls and boys
what am I to do here when
I can no longer hear your voice?

    Very poignant poem and very sad. It’s both “lost love” and “misplaced love”..both leading to heartache…. it’s sad..but true… and applolsaws worthy.. 😀

    • Thank you 😀 I couldn’t decide between “I cannot hear your golden voice” and “I can no longer hear your voice” hence the reprise of the last verse 😀
