Penguin

Lasting and still
Ready for new moments
Elated
Calm
With an inflamed heart
I reach out to you
Come, and tell me your name again
Do you remember sitting here with me
The bench
Near the theater
Loafers and argyle socks
The ones with blue and gray
The colors of your heart
I did all I could to reach you, I thought
But nothing appeared to work
A cold response greeted me by the window each and every time

You knocked on my door
To deliver a goodbye
But I was not home
A message in a bag is where I found you
A tied up bag with a few memories
All returned to a new glory

The five year mark has come and gone
And we are still, here
With nowhere to go
I’ll wait a while longer
I have a new penguin for you
I know they are your favorite

  1. 5 years later … perhaps an icebear?
    I recognize the situation, from both sides … if we let ourselves becomes vulnerable, we only run the risk of seing the truth … at least once.
