A Poem I wrote a few years ago…

Trying to Remember
by Geoffrey Stewart

I am walking down the strangely lit
Sepia streets of my memories
Trying to remember falling
In and out of love with you.

I know you never meant to cut me
with the words you used.
And I don’t know why I could not say,
“Stop twisting this knife that way.”
When we are hurt we don’t know
what to do or what to say
We are far too much alike,
You and I, to ever stay together

I am walking down the strangely lit
Sepia streets of my memories.
Trying to remember falling
In and out of love with you

We were both following someone elses lead,
letting our pasts play with our puppet strings
as we were led
through a waltz of misery
Of joy and tears we had our share
and Gods know I don’t want to care
But the truth is my heart is close to breaking

I am walking down the strangely lit
Sepia streets of my memories
Trying to remember
Falling in and out of love with you

So how do I say goodbye?
When I can’t even explain what you did
or why I can never trust you again?

I am walking down those strangely lit
Rain washed streets of my memories
Trying to remember, trying to remember
Falling in and out of love with you.

Stangely enough there wasn’t a particular break up or emotional upheaval attached to this poem at the time I wrote it… just the strange inspiration of a night time walk after a rain.

Peace, and a blessed Imbolctide
