HAS THERE BEEN AN ECHO FROM MY LIFE?

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

I imagine standing
at the edge of eternity
at the edge of the abyss
and wondering
if there has been an echo
from the life I have lived on earth
anywhere in the world

the moments and times

and not write
for I never
ever want to hurt
the heart of My Friend

If the words
that I said
cut You

by braveandrecklessblog

nocturnal noises provide a rhythm

for conversation’s give and take

We wrap each other gently in words

painting a night sky canvas together

giving glimpses

of our separate worlds

universes apart
