Soulless Windows

Soulless Windows

On the rain wet pavement I stand
The cold memory chills my heart
In the third floor window no glass
Just soulless boarded grey eyes  
No laughter reverberate the walls
or children’s chatter to lighten air
disturbing unknown neighbours
The scent of your love lingers on 
interwoven with cloying sad decay 
Walls remain but you are long gone
to a new life somewhere far away
not reachable to my inner self
That you are lost makes me bitter
but I understand why you had to go
Why did you not take my memories
that force  me unbidden to return 
to this cold rain splattered street
You are still in our empty apartment

    Eamon, you gave me chills when you asked why she did not take the memories with her when she left the apartment. A very touching poem that should do well in the contest! I hope you will consider entering my commercialized holiday humor contest as well. Wishing you peace and blessings this holiday season. Love, Carolyn
