Sad Love Words

Vestiges of the scent of love still linger, mixing in with my memories of the smell of your perfume. Those sad love words for so long in me lived without meaning, once empty, they now lay heavy in chords of melodic pain. Flowing in and out through the air now faint as a shadow’s whisper, leaving me consumed and alone, and still bearing my lost heart. - Written in North KAIA KAbul, Afghanistan Jan 2014

The first line just came to me very quickly, but it was the last line which took me years to feel somewhat satisfied about.... I really appreciate your comment, thanks for stopping by! MC
