To Feel Nothing

Marie writes about love for someone we cannot have. We all have felt this way one way or another. But few people say it as well as she does. Enjoy!!!  @Call_MeMarie




every day we pass each other

like ships in the night

our sails never touching.

our waves never skimming.


some days we turn,

like we felt a breeze

of the other passing

but who is to know?


i look behind.. and i see nothing.

you look behind… and you see leaves blowing.

what just happened?

who is to know.


one day we stopped.

looked straight into each other’s eyes

i saw cold, hard stone.

i saw the wear of a thousand years.

i saw the dirt blow away.


you saw my eyes. blue and filled with longing.

you saw the tear that fell.

you saw the pain.

you saw the hurt.

but you felt nothing.


because every day, it is your grave i pass.

it is your tombstone i see. cold, hard stone.

you feel nothing for me.

because you are gone.

so once again, i pass you.

ships in the night.

our sails never touching.

our waves never skimming.

*for those we lost*

*for those we will yet lose*


I love to learn. I love to teach. For me the two are the same.
