turning turtle

it is my rotten luck
you departed so long ago
yet ignite my soul

ignition turns turtle
you intuitively seek it
I depart hurriedly

I had a someone like this. Lately I have wondered if I should have pushed the barriers against re-entry or if, instead, I should find a new way to keep myself from lifting into the stratosphere when in his presence. _It always took so long to return to normal, after._

Or maybe I am meant to be ok with the long trajectory back to normal.

I am thinking the top of my head just spun off, my love, so that means... great poetry (and so short, how do you do that?)

Read my 3WW offering here.

So poignant and lovely, and I love the evocativeness of "ignition turns turtle."

*sigh* Live long enough, and I think we're each destined to have one like that.

Nicely done.

There are moments in life that even though they departed and left us, their moments still ignite our lost passion...why so?

You made me reminisce some old memories Gautami!

See how rotten I am, too! And I'd wish to depart because of it!

Dee Martin said...

you definitely have a way with this - you evoked memories in so many of us..

Jack said...

Gautami,

Memories remain for a long time and at times make you wonder what next.

Take care

love comes and goes then returns... loved the title as well... have you heard of the snapping turtles from texas... just a thought... not that love ever snaps back and never lets go...
