Retrospective

How can a heart forgive the mark
Permanently, engraved for gaze?
Each time I see her photographs
Hanging behind walls of my heart
Retrospect plays the note she left:

‘I appreciate your sweet kindness
But these my legs just have to run
To better place, sands and easy plans…
Forgive me, I have cracked the shells
Of Morrow’s egg, for I am dead with you.’

  2. The imagery used is very poignant. “Walls of my heart” makes me think of the poet putting up barriers so that later he will not be hurt again. “The notes she left” effectively establishes a haunting sadness. She is still there in the poet’s heart, although he does move on.
