Poem – ” ENCOUNTER “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

ENOCOUNTER

I lost nothing,

Tenderness, kindness,truthfulness only deepened,

You lost everything,

Those things were replaced by others and they deepened,

we part not as friends ,

but as ghosts,

the same as when we met,

but this time-

No ties or strings,

No mess left to clean,

Nothing left to believe,

Sour grapes?

No, enlightenment and transcendence.
