Gone

She is gone…

Taking her fragrance with her, taking

My heart with her…

She is gone…

Like a bird she has taken flight and altered my

life…

She is gone…

The air has changed; every breath now brings me memory pains…

She is gone…

Loneliness has embrace my existence and

seeks to set up residence in my heart…

Her walk, my fault… Her walk, my lack of communication…

Blind vision and no trust in the power of love led to hemorrhaging

In the relationship…

Finger pointing, disagreements and infrequent physical contact

Led to departure and the sounds of bags packing…

She

Is

Gone…

Misery following me…Memories haunting me…Inside my soul

A huge hole and echoes of her name continue to bounce off the wall of my heart…

Like an apparition, like morning dew

She

Is

Gone….

Took all my joy with her…

Took all my strength with her...

Took the music out my soul with her...

She

is

Gone...
