Scotland in November

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

Scotland in November

looking back
it seems quite obvious
we were doomed
before we started

so very far apart
culturally and

but we had so much
and passion
and all that love

so many great times
and those special moments
I’ll always remember

but the passion faded
and the laughter died
and the love
just wasn’t enough
to cross the distances
or hide the differences

deep down
it still lingers
and sometimes
briefly flickers
but nothing can hide
the harsh truth

you were July
on the Côte d’Azur
and I was
Scotland in November

    Wowwww, I love the way you write this stuff…the ache, the longing, the embers that still flicker–and the last 4 lines, nothing short of Brilliant. I enjoy these even though they’re sad and remind me of love that couldn’t be. Bravo, here’s to Someday Love.

    This is very relatable, especially the lingering moments of the good time shared.

    Beautiful and sad.
    But it contains so much joy and happiness.
    What you unfailingly capture so well and so gently is the transitory nature of it all.
