  • Had to go now

    All that life has given will be taken again
    Once more around, hope chance are left wanting
    Heard your voice calling down that corridor again
    Memories like vapour that voice so young
    I miss you more than you were ever thinking

    Couldn’t take it for another moment
    Had to go leaving like a shadow on winters street
    Subtle as snow and hard as sleet
    This place could not keep me
    Could not house me
    Had to go before beggar requests a crumb

      The last few memories of a dying man? This idea of corridor and a voice, younger that what is remembered, at the end of it make me think of that. Maybe the last few regrets at the end of one's life. We remember how we have left, however we only truly feel the regret at the end. And there is as well the explanations instead of the apology, a very human reflex. Instead of apologizing for the agony, to oneself (because obviously, there is this confession that the one left behind was missed) as well, there is this paragraph of explanation, topped by a last admission of pride, not desiring to be a beggar begging. It is a small summary about how many humans approach rejection, regrets, yearning. I liked it very much, thank you for sharing.
