Now I’m alone.
Your innocence flusters me.
Your postures embezzles me.
Your eyes drown me.
But your voice saves me.
Broken roofs opened my eyes.
I saw the scaffolds of your body.
Seeping through the squares of your heart
was the light that cleared my soul.
I made up this story that had a bit of me and a lot of you. In it you laughed and sang and hummed many tunes. You walked and ran and strolled on the sea shore. You danced and jumped and all the world belonged to you. And when it was time to go to bed, you found my hand and held it tight and rested your head upon my lap and closed your eyes to sweet serenity.
I no longer remember you for I can’t create your image in my mind anymore.
I no longer feel your soft skin, and your scent is fainting away forever.
I no longer love you and I wonder how you feel about this.
