i thought my greatest fears

were founded

when you left me

when you said you

never would

and the hand you

gave me

is also the one you

pulled away.

i am still afraid.

i am afraid you will

forget

the times i

replay

in my bed

in my head

alone

when there is nothing else

to comfort me.

i am afraid

the love i had

for you

will forever

prick my hands

like weeds

and you will

run to greener pastures

in another girl’s bed

and the next night

another’s.

i just want you

to remember my name

and all the sparks

that burned

when we did exactly

what we shouldn’t have -

every time

our souls collided,

then crashed

in an ocean of sweat -

sumberged in

frantic waves of desire.

i am afraid

my memory

will escape you

like dandelion dust

and i will be left

with the stems -

forever holding on.

thank you for inspiring this one, Poppy!

    I feel every word of this; to walk away with pain and love is no miracle, it's strength. Bravo, Sara!

    Love this. So much pain, so much wantonness. Slight editorial thing, if you care, you've said "sumberged" when I guess you mean "submerged"?

  • Very clever poem, including the danelion prompt.

    Damn this is good!! Better than good. “and the hand you gave me is also the one you pulled away.” That was my favourite part until I got to where you used “dandelion” and oh my gosh that was astonishingly evocative and well written. That ending!! I loved it!!
