SOMETHING LINGERS ...

Post by Tom Watson » Sun Aug 26, 2007 11:52 am

Something lingers about
Untouchable, but touching with pain...
Something whispers to me, "Shout!
Scream! Pray, then maybe something will not return Again."

And yet, something always does settle in...
It could be a voice, filled with accents...
Laughter, teasing memories of when
I last heard, I last felt, I last absorbed her scent...

Something sits in the dimly lit room,
Waiting under the dust of time...and fear.
It may be porcelain, or plaster shadowed in gloom,
Something that died in a long ago...so near.

Something that brought a smile...gentle touch
Of joy to have for the memory of a pet,
A gentle touch of love that was, ohhh...is too much
For this something within to let me forget...

I had decided to copy this from the "Challenge" forum to post here because it seems the word "challenge" seems very frightening to most people here
Thank you Naushin and Graeme for your previous kind comments

... and it is oh so beautifully written.... I just cant stop wanting to read it and re-read it... and read it again... your poem brings back the something that i need to forget... yet its too beautiful to discard yet from my memories... I love this write!!
And as I watch you in this light
I never realized your eyes were full of
So many colors.

This is truly wonderful, Tom!

Thank you so much for writing this :bow:
"A woman with the courage to step out into the unknown, risking temporary loneliness for a shot at lasting joy, is more than a "single." She's singular. Instead of defining herself by what she lacks - a relationship with a man - she defines herself by what she has: a relationship with God." ~from Dawn Eden's 'The Thrill of the Chaste'
