Untitled (For Claire)

The glass on which

you sipped your favorite

mango pulp

stares at me.

your scent mocks me,

i here voices,a fading laughter-

am too distant.

A picture of us,

stabs me deeper than any blade-then

dips its fingers

into my wounds to make

the pain caused by your absence a REALITY.

Oooweee, that's good! I literally could feel the pain and anguish. Made me have a flashback for a second to a time that I'd rather NOT remember, lol! Oh well, thank goodness that time heals all wounds. Hope you had a Merry Christmas and Happy and Blessed New Year.

SilverBow said...

hey, so i need to know; this stuff is it always fiction or true. i dont want to be wasting my emotions feeling sorry for and with you on fiction. if this is real, i would say; take heart looking forward to the time when yoy will look on all these things, talk about her with out a single tear even in your heart. the time does come.

if its fiction, oh well, there's no way you can express this this well if you havent gone thru it, right?
