Poetry Tuesday

Tuesday has rolled around again so it is time for another piece of poetic diversion.

I used to kiss those lips that now only say “Good morning”

Those hands that once touched me, held mine, and made me feel alive

When she left everything changed

Those lips stopped kissing, hands stopped touching

Our eyes meet but don’t look at me the way the used to

Cold, dark, nothing where there once was passion and fire, burning

Lips forced into a small smile

What changed?

No more want, need, talk of grand adventures, embraces in the dark

What happened?

What did she tell you?

What did I say, do?…

Questions unanswered

Your enduring presence like a specter, a ghost upon my heart

Haunting.

Took a chance only to be spurned

What can I say, do, now?
