What's Left of Me

What's Left of Me

Since you left, I'm but a ghost -
a figment of who I used to
be, as the essence of soft shadows 
follow me. The sun has lost its
golden glow and the moon its silver
halo. My heart aches to be free
for without you, I'm not me, and 
since you left, I'm but a ghost.

Since you left, I’m only a specter -
an entity suspended in time, locked in
a maze, blending with the essence of  
soft shadows. A prisoner of gray, misty 
dreams, I’m doomed to love you until 
the sands of time run out, and 
black holes spill their dark secrets. Fading 
since you left, I'm only a specter.

Died and In Heaven Above So sad you no longer are my love, And did fly off like a diligent dove; No longer here, My precious dear; Have died and are in heaven above.

This is a winner Pandita, from the fan mail and comments here! Loved the space metaphor, "[until] black hole spill their secrets." But the speaker in the poem is more resilient, more love-ly, and will enjoy art till ART yields another hope-filled heart.
