Something Concrete

Now that you are gone

I would expect to flee

this carapace whose windows

open to an empty space

filled with disembodied dreams

and treasure troves of loves debris.

Defenseless eyes peer dutifully

in search of what was you and me.

Lush murals splayed across the walls

are faded tones of ash and loss

and corners that held vivid dreams

are stacked with ebbing memories.

I am all that remains

yet when I look at me

I see right through.

    Such a sad moment, Holly. I think we’ve all been there, and the feeling comes right back reading these words. Beautifully written!

  4. Bonjour Heart
    Mon premier passage sur ton blog
    Vois-tu il y a des jours sur un simple sourire
    On peux rendre la vie plus belle
    Si le mien de sourire peux te faire cet effet
    Alors je reviendrais encore tant faire
    C’est une envie de te faire plaisir et t’offrir du bonheur
    Je t’envoie une grosse envolée de bisous d’amitié
    Bonne et agréable journée Bernard
