Letter to Joyce

 

(or is this just a fleeting

passing moment in my life!)

 

How many times

did it take for me

to tell you I do.

Only once -

because I thought

our union would last

for eternity.

You see I loved you so.

 

I will be lonely without you,

because I will be missing you.

Babe I loved you so long ago.

From the beginning of time

till now we were meant to be.

 

The time is drawing near

I know you left me so alone.

So please don't be so cruel

and heartless like the day

you left me without a care

in the world for I saw

your bleeding, such a sad heart.

 

Reflections in the waves,

spark my memories

of our honeymoon

on the beach in Naples, Florida.

 

Set an open course

for the virgin sea.

Half way there

was as far

as we would ever get.

 

You took my hand in marriage

and crushed my heart in divorce

that was not picture perfect

bittersweet my tears

flood many worlds.

 

Whenever I had enough of you

it was your unblemished body

that drove me wild.

 

I will be lonely without you.

The day you said I do

I actually felt wanted

by another human being

for the first time

in this incarnation.

 

Now I am hardly alive.

I am not

just another

charity case.

 

The day you left me

is the night the music died

in my life. My heart doesn't

beat the way it used to.

 

Long nights, I am just want I am.

You see when you left me

I wept for months on end.

Praying to my God

not wanting loneliness

in my life anymore.

 

I know HE exists

and that the

Godhood is the truth.

 

He has Sophia

and in all his infinite might

he couldn't put a female

in my path to be my Earthly Companion.

 

Joyce was my one shot at marriage.

I hold marriage as though it is

a sacred institution of God's

Holy Ghost.

 

That is my reflections

on how I looked at you

my lovely dear.

You were my moon

and my stars.

But, would you believe it?

As is always the case, Victor, I enjoyed your characteristic blend of the personal and the metaphysical. This image sticks in my mind:

By its very nature, the title piques the reader's curiosity.

This is a sad imagery from your life Vic.

The poem provokes attention with wonder: why?!

I agree with what Tony has to say here.

This is a real letter of pain and love.

 

Glad you share it Vic.

Hi victor,

 

From the pain of a lost love you evoke the beauty and healing of Sophia - the symbol of wisdom and release from the torments of the soul.

 

 

Moving and beautiful.
