Poem: Reconnecting

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

"I'd Come Back For You" by Nickelback

poem-reconnecting

She loves him
until one fateful day
when his words crush those feelings
into tiny fragments.

Lost and alone
she sees her reflection
broken in the mirror
hoping it is a bad dream.

As she reconnects the pieces
asking her heart to be forgiving,
attempting to understand
mistakes made along the way,
he reaches out to her.

He hopes to find a spark
to rekindle their passion
as she looks at him in a new way,
taking one step at a time
igniting the flame.

"Feelin Way Too Damn Good" by Nickelback

Re-connecting and re-igniting the flame. Some bitter-sweet fire here. Happy New Year!

Thank you Rosina for your heartfelt reply.

Yes...this one starts sad but ends happy.

The best of both worlds I guess.

I am trying to keep writing a few happy ones.

My Christmas was fine. I hope yours was also.

Happy New Year!
