perfection in death

Today I took all of Aprils
pictures down
I placed them in an album
so their still safe and sound
But gone are the images
of which visitors would ask
And my answer "My April"
now part of my past
Placed to rest benieth
transparent pages
Motionless, voiceless and now ageless
I would wear April 
with pictures of her faces
I kissed her pictures
on a regular basis
But it's time to depart
from my wanted wife
A short lived dream
in my so called life
I played house with something
less than a ghost
It was the best that I could do
besides compleatly lossing hope

    John, I put my loved ones pictures in a chest, I go to when I need to, I slowly open it up and the wounds are still there, your poem is powerful and I am sure many people can relate to it., I know I do. Constance

    It's the empty feeling inside that's to hard to fill I think John. Nothing good about loss, it becomes part of us always but isn't it sweet to have good memories. Sad but nice you could share this part of yourself. Love, Lizzie

    and I applaud that truthfulness, I like it when you're real...if you've taken down the pictures it could create space for something (or someone) new to come into your life :-)
