My final offering for the time being, one of my personal favourite pieces of poetry I have ever written and then Worded, it was created so as to show the flow of feeling that both Ennis and Jack have and then how they come together in one sentiment. I wanted to create a bitter-sweet piece of poetry with this and of course the ever-inspirational Annie Proulx helped with its creation (not personally :( , of course) but I also wanted to chart the emotional rollercoaster of how things can go wrong in a relationship, how the good times are equally hard to match and the feelings that may transpire from love.
Of course, this poem is slightly different to the novella in so far as, at the end there is a sense of hope, whereas Ennis is left with nothing/ very little at the film/novellas end, except for his memories, the shirts and the postcard.
Again, comments and constructive criticism are very welcome.
You were meant for me
You were meant for me.
I see it in your ocean deep blue eyes,
I feel it in the electricity that jolts when our hands brush,
I sense it when I’m near you.
But most importantly,
I know it in my heart.
We are there for each other,
Holding on to one another, like a stone to stop us drowning.
Through wind and rain, every bind, every pain,
You are there.
As it was fated so.
Sometimes I feel a tug of remorse,
For those that have not what we have.
But, regrettably, the feeling fades,
As there you are, smiling, laughing with no such cares.
But not for long as I join you.
Caught in a whirlwind of the oblivious.
I’m holding you close,
Something went wrong,
But you aren’t telling me what.
You’ve fallen to your knees,
But I’ll pick you up.
No matter the sin, no matter the crime, no matter its gravity,
We’ll survive this.
Since we were meant to be.
