Spring’s Bleeding Heart

Spring evokes excitement.
I smell Spring.
I breathe Spring.

And yet.

Spring evokes sadness.
I remember good times.
I cry.

Spring evokes haunting.
Carefree days.
City lights at night.

Spring evokes life.
I watch as an outsider.
A hidden being.

Spring evokes love.
Too much.
I hurt.

Spring evokes passion.
Let me be.

Spring evokes hope.
It has no right.
Set me free.

Spring evokes kisses.
Sweet longing at night.
Mornings alone.

Spring evokes images of you.
Your life.
Shared so freely.

Spring please be over.
I can’t bare it.
Any longer.

My heart bleeds.
Spring’s joy is not mine.
This time.

    Those elapsed times swept along with sweet memories attached add a melancholy feel, the hurt locked within and the longing of those times to be rejuvenated is strong, and yet one must set aside those feelings and move on…

    A very nice piece of writing Francine, and I love the rose image my sweet friend.

    So many emotions awakened with these beautiful words
