discarded relationships


discarded relationships
I walk the shores of my life
and see what has been cast up
every relationship long or passing
is evidenced on edge of thoughts
memories ocean heaving and turning
so many here and now gone
never truly discarded by me
I want to continue the dialogue
to know what became of them
since they shone a blade of light
from their own beacons of life
into and onto my own
how have they grown
or do they remain exactly as they were
the people I once knew
how are they now
floating beyond my reach
and if we meet shall it be
a quick hello and hurry off
hoping recalled the right name
trying to recall if we parted well
or parted through clenched teeth
and how much was love above
and how much apathy or hate beneath
when I reflect upon
walk up and down the shore along
the remnant memories
of those I once knew
of relationships cast upon these shores.

    Quoting MulleenofMelb:
    and some, should be buried late at night in an unmarked pit, when you are so damn drunk you won't remember where you did dig....

    and, the first time I glanced at your comment, and this is all on me not you......I saw....

    Really makes one stop and drink.

    Which I thought completely appropriate,...until I realised you put stop and think....which is just as appropriate, if not more so, and probably better for the liver!

I have been known to stop and drink at the same time on occasion!! Not often but I can think of a couple. It all gets better with time...so I have been told.

    "sometimes we discard relationships to soon, and I suspect, if we invest enough we could bring them back....but do we truly care enough to expend such energy?"

    I think it depends on the relationship...some are better left in the past. Some are worth giving all you have and more to bring back....IMHO

    Nice post. Really makes one stop and think.

    Quoting author51:
    I have had my share of past relationships who I run into quite often here in my small town.I also see my ex husband when out visiting my three kids and we are friends now. Much better than when we were together..Sometimes depending on the break up, one can maintain a friendship of sorts and talk about the good old days without past pain and heartache they may have dealt with together...
it can be a struggle, and sometimes works, and sometimes not...and works better if both land somewhere else, and perspective can be gained from what was past, and how the present now appears...

    I have tried to respond a few times to this. Suffice it to say it hits close to home what you wrote dear Mulleen.
it was your comment which ignited thought, not about you specifically, but about such a plight....stay well and safe, dear friend.

    Quoting Heathen_G:
    Don't take your babes to the same shores.

    because someone mentioned, sometimes we discard relationships to soon, ... Sometimes that is true. We also get into relationships too soon.
    Sometimes, not having a committed relationship is a good thing. Especially when one or both are not ready.

    and I suspect, if we invest enough we could bring them back. .... No. They're not going to change. You work out the bumps before you commit. That makes things much better.

    If "Relationships" were on the stock exchange, it would be a bad investment.

    ...but do we truly care enough to expend such energy? ... Why waste energy?
yes, mostly, except when circumstances are other.

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

Stimulate my mind with words of poetry. And my body will follow it's lead...
