Poem: Etching in My Mind

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Etching in my mind is a poem that describes how one feels after he has had an argument with his loved one. Words spoken in haste often put a wedge between the love two people share. There is a picture embedded in one's mind that time doesn't erase. Feelings fade.

Ecthing in My Mind

Manners and ways,
words spoken in haste,
no amount of love
can ever erase
this etching in my mind.

A wedge created
between your heart and mine,
faded feelings
drift away
with time.

Feelings fade after disagreements

So true, Brenda, without heartache there would be very few country and western songs.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on August 06, 2019:

Thank you, John.

I think we all can write sad poems, after all what would country and western music be without heartaches?

So glad you enjoyed the song. It is a little older and not too well known, but fitting.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on August 06, 2019:

Sad poem but well-written, Brenda. I like the song too.

ValKaras,

Thank you. I am glad you find this short piece of work beautiful.

You are right, he does not deserve her.

Val Karas from Canada on August 05, 2019:

Brenda -- It's a beautiful poem; he obviously doesn't deserve her.
