Yes, this poem is from a true story, it really happened.
   How pathetic was this?

I still think about you

Last night ...
     I visited the tenement house  where we used to live  twenty some years ago.
I sat on the curb across the street,
     watching for your face,
          waiting for your smile,
               wondering what went wrong:
                "Why has the love of my life left me?
                     "Why am I still here?"

This morning ...
     I was watching a young couple  sitting on the front stoop of the tenement house
where we used to live.
     He was angry and confused;
     She was hurt and had been crying.
I could see that he was mostly afraid,
     but he wouldn’t admit it to himself.
Mostly she was angry,
     but she didn’t seem to know this;
          perhaps she just didn't care anymore.

They were staring into the end of the world at their feet
      as they stared into the face of Destruction:
          That old Devil, Silence.

Right then ...
     it seemed that there was no hope.
When, suddenly
     one small chance flashed between them,
          fluttering timidly, fleetingly,
               like a butterfly.

The young couple reached out,
     clutching for that one last hope,
          clinging to the lifeline, a fraid to let go.

In an instant they captured all creation with each a careful smile.
     “I’m sorry.
           “I don’t know why I hurt the one I love.
      “Please forgive me. Never let me go.
          “Never let me stare into this abyss again.
               “I can’t live without you.”

Right then ...
     I said a silent prayer for you: 
“Wherever you are Elaine, I want you to find happiness. Even if I’m not there to share it with you, my  heart is there."

I still care about you.
