The Tune Remembered

Eyes shut
fingers fumble
numbers forgotten
I cannot dial the phone
I search
longing to hear
a voice gone silent
waking after dreams
the melody lingers
I face reality
a single life
my cage
I can only sing the tune remembered

Remembered Tune

    “longing to hear a voice gone silent…” Your words strike a chord. I like this a lot.

      Hope it wasn’t a discordant chord. A plaintive chord is how it feels to me.

    Lonely. I’ve been there.

      This dream always stirs me up for days afterwards. I can’t really express what it does to me.

    “waking after dreams/the melody lingers” You capture the longing so perfectly.

      I try, I still can’t get it right, there is too much of it sometimes. Thanks for your nice comment.

    “I can only sing the tune remembered.” The prison within. Great take!

      We always create the strongest bars ourselves.

    Oh, yeah, I know that tune. Great response to the prompt, too!

    I OFTEN dream of not being able to operate a phone. It’s so frustrating! (I know that’s not really what this is about.)

      In a way it is. I do have this dream, and I believe it is a symbol of the fact that I can’t “find” him, but it is always a phone the evokes the worst feelings

    Your sadness is tangible here, Claudette. After reading this, I miss him too. ❤

      Thanks Nate. I know I’m biased, but he was great. 🙂

      Other moments are filed with happiness. If there is no pain how can you know you are happy?

      Thank you for reading and commenting so kindly.

      I quite liked it when it came out, very truthful to me too. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

    Memories can chain us and free us. This is truth.

    You got me!! That is beautiful. Gut wrenchingly heartbreaking. I am crying. Amazing eyes!! You could drown in those!! Huge hug my gorgeous girl!! xxxxx


    • Claudette 06/06/2014 / 5:49 pm

      Aah, he did indeed, and I did, and I still do. Blue, like mine they were. No crying, now. he past is another country, for most of the time anyways. Drink and be merry I say (sipping my Schnapps helps).
      Hugs right back to you.


Happiness is kind words from a friend .....
