Out of Sight Out of Mind

At one time

You were mine

I loved you

With an endless flow

Until my flow

My love for you

Hit a dam

Currents back lashed

Bringing our connection

To an end

To cope I moved

Out of town

Out State

So you could be

Out of sight

and Out of my Mind

Still we talked

Attempting to be Just friends

You want a new start

To move here

Find a new life

Different than before

Soon to be

no longer out of sight

Again in my mind

To prepare

My China walls must be built

Around my fragile heart

So when you are around

It doesn’t start

To once again

Break apart

    // those such touching lines…
    very beautifully expressed…

  3. “China Walls” may they come tumbling crumbling down.

    Were you listening to Joni Mitchell’s Court & Spark when you wrote this — reminds me of that feel.


  4. My China walls must be built

    “Around my fragile heart

    So when you are around

    It doesn’t start

    To once again

    Break apart”

    Wow. I like the word play with the word “China”–China being the Chinese wall but also as fragile as china as well. Very beautiful, that ending really powerful.

    The words in the poem flow so sweetly when you say them aloud…and the impact of the arrival of an old love is clearly marked within the poem…well said.
