Blissful Surrender
by Brooke Angela Brooks

The shadow of a love once known 
lingers in the back of my mind. 
I reach forward to grasp my heart's defeat, 
and cannot see... for the tears that fill my eyes. 

Blindly I wander on, searching for my lost tranquility. 
For the one thing that made me whole... You.
I call your name, but you do not hear, 
or is it that you do not listen

As your shadow drifts farther, my heart slowly subsides 
I close my eyes with your scent, your touch, 
and your warm breathe still near.
I, then, realize- it is not you who cannot hear,

It is I.
