AT THE AIRPORT

She left him for awhile And it seemed alright. . . . Until . . . The sound And touch of her Was gone. He failed to sleep And the hunger disappeared. He could not feel the soft caresses Of places only God can see. And emptiness, Like soft shadows, Moved within his soul. . . . Then, he knew . . . His love was gone.

You sound like a narrator in this poem! I like the simplicity of this poem and the feeling of rejection (which I often get) seeps through these lines. (David B)

Love surely gives the greatest joy and the worst pain...but we still enjoy this painful ride..right? I felt the emotions and yes I should say you penned them so gracefully. Wonderful !!
