do you think of me? (A POEM)

i think of you when
the clouds cry drops
of tears like my own,
each one a reminder
that you left, that you’re gone.

i think of you when
the sun bleeds me dry,
the rays a cosmic force
bent on burning my
cells to iron smithereens.

i think of you when
the wind picks up speed
and each gale weathers
my wet, burnt skin
with your memory.

i think of you often,
every thought like a
teardrop from the sky.
do you think of me,
or have i passed you by?


With most poems I prefer to write some explanatory notes on why I chose my subject matter and whatnot. With this poem, I think I’d like to keep the backstory personal, and let you take away what you’d like from it.

I’ll leave it at that for today.

Until next time,

  1. Really loved this, Katie!! Beautifully penned romantic and wistfully pensive love poem. Your end – “do you think of me,
    or have i passed you by?” Was great!!! Bellissimo, My Dear, Bellisimo!! We are hoping that you will fill us in on the backstory in time or in a Sequel???? Hope you are having a great weekend!!


    1. Thank you so much!!! It really means a lot. And yes… I will provide a sequel with explanation shortly!!!! It is fun leaving a little to the imagination, but I will be writing out my feelings soon! :)))))

      Enjoy this weekend too!!

  2. Aww. This really resonates with me right now. It’s just like I wrote in my letter to myself yesterday. “Sometimes you put your heart into someone and they…forget you even exist.” It’s okay, though. You’re still loved by the people who really matter. Stay positive, my dear.

    1. Thank you so much for reading! And you are absolutely right… Beautiful line from your letter. It can be hard to accept sometimes, but we can never forget those we love/who love us in return. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
