my guitar quietly weeps for you

my guitar quietly weeps for you

.

Forever drying off
the guitar bridge
that never leads
me back to you
I find myself
playing wet strings
that serve as cruel reminders
of the faded connections
between me and you

Now that you are gone
my heart always beats off key
while the tears never stop
on this damp instrument
And since you no longer care
I write the saddest lyrics
for I’ll always love you in my songs
as my guitar quietly weeps for you

  1. I wouldn’t wish this feeling on my worst enemy.

    Maybe this is the hopeful part of me, but maybe there’s a chance you can get your love back? Use the guitar to serenade her! Throw some flowers in there, too! lol

    1. Lol. No, I wouldn’t wish this feeling on anyone. You are very hopeful. Thank you for the positive vibes and support. However, it is over. And I was tempted to write “over” in all CAPS. I am moving on. Taking it day by day. My writing has always been therapeutic for me. Had to write this one with ink and blood. Actually, feeling much better. Thank you so much for your very kind words and support. It is greatly appreciated.

      1. I’m sorry to hear that, but it’s good that you’re getting it out and being honest about how you feel. It helps with the healing process. 🙂

        You’re very welcome, my friend. Keep that positive attitude!

  2. What beautiful poetry! But also what sadness. I’m still so very sorry things didn’t work out, but hope a beautiful love finds you again. For now, I’m glad your melodic words continue.

  3. Given the exchange we had regarding that one poem of mine, I can’t help but read yours in a quite different way.. weeping.. beating off.. etc.. x’D
    I so blame you for all those innuendos!!
    On a side note, I added a new section to my blog ‘my song covers’ and added one recording i did just a few moments ago. mind having a listen and tell me your opinion? and no, nothing saucy! x’D

  4. Thank you for visiting my little blog. I’m flattered as I read your poetry. You have a gift…and though the above might be fiction, it comes across as true heartbreak (Been there, done that) I hope that is not the case and that your sweet love is still making music by your side. The lonely author…how unfortunately apt.

    1. Unfortunately, this was inspired by a real break up. I am trying to write the pain out with my poetry. Yes my blog name is appropriate now. Thank you for all of your kind words. They made me smile. And it will be a pleasure to follow your blog. Thanks.

      1. I am truly sorry to hear that. Having gone through a very dark time myself, I wrote about it in a 3 part post. Each one is about a page long. It’s how I learned to find joy in life again after the suffering. Search the term “heartbreak” and you will find it. I hope, in some small way, it helps. 🙂

Thank you so much for taking the time out to read my poem and share your wonderful thoughts. They are greatly appreciated.

    2. Sorry, you can relate in any way to this poem. Although it may not feel like it at times, I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I try to write the sadness out of me through my poetry. Very flattered by your kind words. Thank you for taking the time out to read and comment. The gesture is greatly appreciated.

    1. You made me smile with these lovely words. They truly made me happy. There is no need for bitterness or anger. Just trying to heal and move on. Thank you so much for your encouraging (beautiful) words. They are appreciated and needed.

      1. Sometimes I think being able to have this kind of feelings is a good thing. How dull life would be if there’s never such deep feelings involved. I could certainly have said in a more sophisticated way but I’m a bit sleepy right now. It’s night in Norway. I’m sure you get it Andrew.

  5. Andrew my friend I’ve come to a crossroad again and I must chose..I don’t ask for this crossroad but never the less I must chose a direction..my conundrum is that right now I’m in a holding pattern and I must be patient right now and I can’t stand to wait…I want instantaneous results…..life is like an ice cream cone you’ve got to learn how to lick it

  6. Well, dear Lonely, this is how many of the best poems, songs, paintings and Art Gowns are born.
    Sadness, through art, creeps up again, after we think we are in the clear.
    The guitar, ever eluding perfect tuning, twists its notes quickly, after perfect imperfection.
    It doesn’t matter. The worse it sounds, the better it might be.
    So we write, paint, draw, design, rhyme, sculpt our way to a sort of freedom.
    A very lovely, heartfelt poem, indeed!
    I’m very thrilled that you write your poetry, which I adore.

    1. Very honored by your words. Great art in all of its forms usually comes from pain. Not to say this was great. However, this did come from pain.
      Thank you for your very thoughtful comment and inspiring words. They encourage me to go on. Thank you so much for your kindness.

        1. No it isn’t about her. I found this image on google while on vacation and I started formulating ideas until I finally wrote it on Monday night.
          Get it out??? That is all I do. Hopefully, I encourage love in the process.
          Thank you for your kind words.

  7. “for I’ll always love you in my songs”
    I really like this line. Brings the conclusion to a level of sweet sadness.
