in huff of gray clouds

a ravaged kite disappears

losing speed mid-air

a string tumbles down from sky…

my lover never returns

    Wow what a powerful write. You wouldn't think it's so powerful when you first start to read this poem, but it grows and grows, then this culminating line is hurled, "my lover never returns" I just love it Nette! I love everything about your wonderful piece! I really enjoyed your write that I have read this afternoon! Great Work!!
