Please welcome the colourful fallen leaves
As October makes its sudden entrance
Suddenly worries disappear with ease
And it changes how your mind perceives

Perhaps it will change a distant friendship
One that should have lasted a century
However just like a broken, old ship
The crashing will not just be sensory

Maybe think of an innocent lover
The lover has dreamed of a connection
But as you will very soon discover
Their love will end in painful rejection

October might one day come to an end
As the opportunity to amend
I wrote this during ELA. Had to hold back my tears

Your nectar trickled down
It’s flavour was renown
The sweet tasting caramel
Slowly chipped at my will

It’s damped my mouth
And pretend I had drought
It spilled its honey substance
And did my longing, justice

It painted my tongue
And between my gums
Lastly it started to float
Down my aching throat

It crawled down my pipe
And made the tube ripe
But it’s objective was my heart
As it would slowly rip me apart

So before it could continue
I started to swallow it whole
Making sure your loving covet
Stayed at the bottom of my stomach

Won't you talk to me more?
For your voice I adore
It shatters my heart's core
And makes my soul soar
Catherine Bailey May 2020
As I feel the suffocating cries of misery
Your ghosted smile spirited me away
My heart remained longing and hungry
For the chance you stayed with me that day

The gentle warming and bound peace
From your disappearing, loving embrace
And the sweet aroma of honey from you,
Told me that everything you said was pain

Yet the tears wetting my cold cheek
Could never compare to your lips
As each droplet makes a streak,
I find your love for me was an eclipse
I’m tired, I should go retire

Not constantly talking with others made me think
I’m so confused as my mind I’ve tinkered with
I wish I could say goodbye to her, since I never learn
But I’ll have to secretly watch her giving off affection I yearn
I wonder if she also misses me?
Catherine Bailey Apr 2020
Goodbyes beyond our imagination
You can feel words under your skin
They never met their final destination
As your silence was a sin
Catherine Bailey Apr 2020
My heart used to beat
                   Rhythms always used to meet
                No longer any anymore
                       As it aches forevermore
I was reading a story, It wasn’t that shabby. But when I got to a certain part, the one of the broken lovers’ pact, my tears freely flowed. It hurt how much I related.
