After Words or Afterwards

A moment in the speaking
Those little words we say
Before the ever-after
That none can wipe away

A moment in our making
Before released into
The blue of ever-afterward
That nothing can undo

A moment for a moment
Before its drop is stored
In the endless eternity
Of ever Afterward

  1. Oh, how I wish some of my words had never been uttered, never stored in my mind and someone else's.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
