So Far Gone

So Far Gone short poem

Photo by Stuart Conner 

So far gone still so much to be done
You needed me, you told me
We have only begun still so lonely
You loved me, the old me
I used to feel homely
but their jokes are no longer funny
You kissed me and you held me
You missed me and you felt me
you touched me and you helped me
I used to feel like your only
till you made me hop away like a bunny
Ask around town those I surround
Look around like a hound,
those that didn’t annoy
They know me and probably owe me
The fact I kick things down with a pound
The contract I smacked and paid in pounds
Truth is I have had my rounds
Reality is am still standing sound
Stay away clowns, that want me to drown
I know they probably want to dethrone me
As we gather here some want us to be scattered in fear
I don’t need a sightseer to show that that they want us in tatters and gutters
Don’t worry I see her running the show as she flatters and batters turning men into debtors
So far gone a nuisance to society but music is a part of me
We have even fasted still so weak, even though we dated
I have been debated, billed and hated even though we lasted
Could have made you smile, Could have walked the miles
Could have carried you, Could have married you
By now, but now, bye now
So far gone, So far done

Gone And Departed

Hearts shed people throughout life- like broken angels crossing time- in the form of lovers and loved ones. Some wake you up after they’re gone- others startle you as they depart. Lovers depart like a fife- cutting silence with great
