The rain ended abruptly,
stalled my heart from beating,
drenched in the memory of you.

Broken nights of sleep,
with painful visions
that will forever remind me
of who you really are.  

Contained in subtle misery;
an inability to forget that which
lingers in present dreams.

-Brian Shuffett
September 26th, 2011
I haven't written in so long and finally something just hit me. This is far from my best work, but it speaks of what I know, or that which I have felt on countless sleepless nights.

Makes me sad, but it's a beautiful poem. Sorry I haven't been posting/commenting in a while, been gone for a year! Hope you're well!

Hey Brian, nice piece (as always). I too have not been writing in a LONG time, but also just got "hit" with the desire to do so again. I hope all is well.....

Hahaha, are you referring to my long breaks in between poems? Yeah, the last one I wrote was nearly seven months ago. Kinda depressing!

I've been going through quite the writer's block. If you look through my gallery, you'll see that the last poem I posted was on March 8th. I can't believe it's been nearly seven months since I've written. :(

I like this piece, it's sad and beautiful. And it sort of describes what I'm going through at the moment.
