I wrote this nearly a year ago as the summer was ending and the autumn was on its way…a very thoughtful and evocative time. This poem, along with many others ended up being included in my poetry collection Highway Heart - which is.
So deeply felt is a burden, nothing else. To feel so deeply makes me frown. Deeply felt is a sin. Feeling deeply a tragic curse. To feel so deeply as to be scarred by everything left to be just a mark.
The moment that you left me, my heart was split in two; one side was filled with memories; the other side died with you. I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep; and take a walk down memory lane with tears
