Painful Goodbyes

Cold body nestles itself in cozy
warm blanket under the spell of
a swaying moon I lose myself in
this empty room...


Surrounded by darkness
memories of you that once
swoon slowly begin to fade
as the hollowness inside
insist on keeping me awake.

Distance so cold seep
into my bones as desolate
tears pen in my soul
painful verses and prose.

So much time has gone by
I search to find small
glimpses of our lives entwined
I can longer make out your
face; but a part of me keeps
searching to find you
anyway.

Come morning I will curse
my own life for who says
half dead is the same as
being alive....
so many times I try to wish
you away but for me it's like 
you never left my side...

    Such passion you have; you must have loved this person with a tender heart easily broken. your heart seems still to be fond. I was deeply moved in your telling and humbled by your masterful interpretation of love lost. I shall enjoy reading more of your poems.
