NOMAD VERSES: Leaving

mindaviews redmoon marcos mordeno nomad verses

The panes froze
as I turned
for a last glimpse
of wasted bliss
and caged pain.
In the gathering dusk
that held a knife
to my shadow,
the cold rain
patted my shoulders,
as if begging me
to never forget.
Yet, to remember
is to suffer.
Memory is a prison.
So let the heart
dwell in silence,
the eloquence of loss,
the graveyard of grief.
There, it shall again
with life pulsate.
