Carry On Tuesday # 109: Slipping through my fingers

When all I want is to hold on to you and shower you with love
why do I feel your hand slipping through my fingers?

How can I see you leave and just let go as you push and shove
when all I want is to hold on to you and shower you with love?

What about the future, the hopes and dreams that we wove?
Why am I left to live with only the memory that lingers?

When all I want is to hold on to you and shower you with love
why do I feel your hand slipping through my fingers?

    maybe he had his reasons… and sometimes, going away is the best thing… maybe he can see it already.. sigh!

    loved the way you wrote it.. it struck a cord…. and made me think!
    Beautifully written T!! 🙂

    That reads like a song: fluid and free-flowing.
    You should write these more often.

    thanks!

    I’ve seen this form, or something like it, before. I like it, even if I can’t find the name. It makes for an interesting poem, and probably very difficult to pen.

    It’s called a Triolet, Mike. or at least that’s the form that I tried to follow. 🙂

    Are you a member of any poetry clubs T?

    no sir. 😀 i don’t think these scribbles qualify to be called poetry in the true sense of the word 😀 thanks
