heart gallery

.

Impasto memories of you are paintings
Hanging in the walls of my heart
Forming a sentimental gallery
Of cubism and abstract art
For every remembrance on display
In this regretful museum of pastel hues
Serves as a lonely inspiration
Reminding me to forget you

  1. Not sure why wordpress is not allowing me to like the poem. Memories are a strange thing, when first created we do not think much of them or even want them to disappear if they are related to something sad but with time nostalgia kicks in and they become our treasures. Be well Chimp

                1. Regarding the memoir, it is always interesting to inject humor into writing. Any antidotes that you experienced along the way. Best of luck with that. Regarding the following you are correct. Be well my friend. Thanks for stopping by.

                  1. Thanks for that advice! Antidotes is funny instead of anecdotes. Fyi, my difficulty I following everyone I meet can be found in this 6/20/18 post, I Exercise and Write 24+ Hours Every Week: An A Dude Abikes Round-Up. Ass for humor, on 6/25/18 I imagined having a conversation with my other binrt that you may find amusing. Correction, that should be as for…. Autofill can be funny too!

  2. Hey Andrew… hope your well. Enough. Thought to share… hope it doesn’t seem creepy… but a dream a few nights ago was the word… Adios! And i searched the spaces in my mind to see who was talking. It was you, your blog… are you leaving WordPress? Or is my imagination gone awry? I have not had time to read blogs but wanted to share a bit what is happening on my end… always appreciate your remarks so wanted to reciprocate your kindness. Hope all is well. JπŸ•Š hope it doesn’t come across as creepy πŸ˜“πŸ€—πŸ’—

    1. Jeanne, I am just starting to catch up on all of these messages while I was away on vacation. I am not leaving blogging. I currently have about 20 poems to post on my blog and I only post twice a week, so I am well ahead of schedule. I will be taking plenty of vacations to take breraks from the stress of life. This was not creepy at all. If you ever need to talk thelonelyauthorblog@gmail.com. Right now, I am well behind on my messages, but I usually get back quickly. I certainly hope you are well.

      I appreciate you reaching out to me. Thank you so much. It is nice to know someone cares. Be well. And thanks.

      1. Hey Andrew… well glad to hear my dream was just that… a dream. I appreciate the invitation to email… so much has changed recently… this move has done wonders. The sun shines today… on my end. To think 10 years ago… 20 years ago… 30 years ago… even 40 some years ago, all that sifted through my head was a wish for death. Not anymore! At least not at the moment and hopefully despair stays clear of my head for a long time. Dont give up is the best message out there. I didnt believe it when i heard it but now im living it… so yes! Dont give up!!!

        I may message you… today i am celebrating 30 years so i am reveling in the fact someone has loved me so long… I certainly do not deserve such love but grateful all the same. Peace to you friend. May your heart heal in the days to come… πŸ’• πŸ’—πŸ•ŠπŸ·πŸ·

        1. Yes, it was just a dream.
          I am embarrassed to finally answer this. I was waiting for just the right moment to give this message the true attention and reply it deserves, which never seems to happen in my life in recent weeks. Things have been ultra hectic.
          Very happy to hear that you are loved and that it has been for so long. I have never had that kind of luck. You are blessed and you should always keep that in mind, especially during your dark hours. Love is not something to be taken for granted. Neither is life. We only get one crack at it.

          Little by little I am healing. Planning on another vacation to get away from it all.
          Thank you for your kind words and wishes. I will take things one day at a time. That is all we can do.

          Blessing to you and yours. May your days be filled with sunshine, smiles, and love.

      1. Hey my good friend. Sorry my absence. Been busy editing my 2nd book. Almost done. I need 17 more poems and then I’m finished. Plus, working on my 3rd book and working on some new poetry material. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait.

        I’ve missed you too my friend. How have you been? How’s life treating you? Hope to hear from you soon. And I’ll try to stop by more often to you blogs. πŸ™‚

  4. Powerful imagery! And you know I love the connection you made between art and the human heart! Art so expresses our emotional being… and so your metaphor is absolute perfection! Love the painting, too! Is it yours or was it painted by a friend of yours? Anyway, this is one of my favorites! Bravo! Encore! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    1. What an inspiring and beautiful comment. One of the best I have ever received. Thank you. The human heart and art seemed like a perfect fit. The photo and artwork was in google images with no source indicated. Thrilled by your words. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. It is greatly appreciated.

  5. Definitely feel a quietness resonating. Museums are places of quiet contemplation, awe, and inspiration. This piece has its own brand of that. A quiet of solitude, the awe of each ‘painting’ providing an inspiration to forget. Nice write!
