My Firmament

I poured alcohol on my wounds,
when you left me.
Even though it wasn't your intentions,
I understand.
I cry endlessly and think,
Your picture on my wall and I remember,
You and me, your unconditional love.
My memories are unreplaceable.

My life flashed before my eyes,
Oh how I wish I was with you.
You never spoke to me but I could tell as I looked into your lifeless eyes.

You kissed me and admired me,
not because you didn't know any difference.
The heart melts with the blindness of love.
Your life was my dream, that I still
live in my sleep.
No replacement of you, I shall not
leave you alone.

I stand before your resting area
My dad teary eyed as he slowly digs a hole within earths soil,
A bottomless end.
I watch my mom cry, her heart is crushed.

We never will forget yet remember,
everything of you.
I was sick, I was hurt, I was growing
and learning and living
becoming a woman, always,
you were there.

Always remember, I shall continue with you,
In the miles I travel and the years I live.
I thank God for you, my miracle,
A treasure that found me.
And I'll cherish every moment that your
love and life had given to me.

Margo Marie Morlock Claim this poet

Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia and now living in the beautiful state of Florida with my husband. Writing has always been my passion. My inspiration is touched by life's that are so precious to me in my life. My father, William G. Morlock has passed on his talent as a poet and given me my art of making words come to life. My way with words are shown within my different poems. My concentration of study is on 17th century women writers. I believe this is an era I should of been living.
