Day 23 – NanoPoblano – “The Time You Kissed And Cried” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “The Double Image” by Anne Sexton

Hello again folks.

We are now at Day 23 of my found poetry marathon and I’m determined to get thirty poems written to complete the whole month since I am so close to the finishing line.

For tonight’s poetic piece, I have selected “The Double Image” by Anne Sexton, which is packed full of genuine intense imagery and emotional images reflecting her life and times.

Her poem was several sides of A4, so once again I will be linking to the lyrics below rather than posting the whole poem here. I will also link to her profile, so you can read more about her life and the incredible way she wrote her poems.

And now, here is my found poem based on the words of Anne Sexton, thank you for reading and I hope it moves you reading it as much as it did me writing it.

“The Time You Kissed And Cried” by David Ellis

Watching the rain falling, remember
You’ll never really know
That letting go was an old debt
The day made you whole
To see where love lives
You grow tomorrow’s tree
And know there was new after this
Enough to live with mended smile
To care where the summer grew sweet again
The morning chill matching doubt
The answer from a mirror
You resembled a complete book of life
You had to learn why love would hurt
A day that waits in what could have been dreaming
Of love turning before we chose our separate ways
This was the time you kissed and cried
Each time we touch from habit, you forget it wasn’t the same
Remember, somewhere, joy came first
And needed you, already loved, sure about life
To remind you to find me

    • Hey there Robbie, that is very kind of you to say so, thank you very much for reading and enjoying my poem 🙂 I’m writing a new poem for all thirty days of November, so still have another week’s worth to go. Also, I mentioned it on Facebook but if you would like an Author Interview then feel free to get in touch with me via here https://toofulltowrite.com/contact-me/ and I will send you an Author Interview Questionnaire.
