Starting the end

There was fog, making it even worse to go
as I sort of disappeared, I felt
lost before you even woke up
and looking back was no use;
the house was gone. For a while
I was nowhere in particular,
except in between two lives,
the one with you and the one after you,
and there was no fading to make it bearable,
only blind walls of grey indifference,
of moist that silenced all,
though each of my steps was a meteor landing.

  6. Boom! In the miasma all is difficult, but then:
    …each of my steps was a meteor landing.
    What a great ending line!

  7. Each of your words are a meteor landing, on velvet, in the fog – this poem opened some long forgotten doors in the echoing hallways of my heart…

  9. I find we cannot stand the silence and so are faced with a choice of mist or wind, I’ve chosen the latter as the mist is soooooo lonely. Welcome back, this is a great piece!


  10. “I was nowhere in particular, except in between two lives”. This lost I feel through your words is haunting. Beautifully penned Ina.

  11. Thomas Davis ‘stole’ my comment (that’s what I get for coming late) about your wonderful last line. Glad you and your magnificient musings are back, Ina!
