You left
I lied
I’m not fine
I can still hear you
when my thoughts are still
call my name
the one you cooed
made me melt
to wetness
chased myself
to the bottom
of the second bottle
were still
rhythmic jostle
and click
of pavement
counting the miles
from Us
to see you
one last time
to gaze upon your
hazel eyes
one last time
and spit at your feet
walk away with
long strides
you served your purpose
on my journey to
another corner turned
and you fade away

One response to “Ruminating

  • rasmihii

    what I enjoy is the linking of the last two stanza’s, which leaves you wondering if the voice in the piece has really moved on, or needs closure – RS
