I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Lipstick Stain Love Poem

Lipstick Stain Love Poem

Remembering Her Essence

As I walk into the room I remember

The mornings we spent in splendor

The perfume you wore still arrest the air

But now I am alone, staring at your chair

The morning jokes you made and the kisses and hugs

Come rushing like a subway train when I see that lipstick stain on your coffee mug

I remember when you looked back at me and gave me a tender smile

How was I to know that was the last happiness in my life

I miss you so much, I miss you harder each day

I sometimes just feel like I don’t want to live,

I wish my soul vanish and let the wind take me away.

My mind is crushed, my heart destroyed

Knowing that another love you have enjoyed

I try to move on but you love was so good

It keeps coming back to me.

I try to move on but all I can remember is the nights under the sheets.

Maybe, just maybe we can share your love

He gives you a few kisses, and me the good love.

I miss you, I miss who you are baby

But you are and shall forever be, my first lady.

No pam, just a poem for my friend who lost his.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on May 12, 2019:

This is such a well written poem that I could feel the loss also. I hope this account is not true for you, but the writing sounds so true.
