whispers in the dark
warm breath on my neck
finger-traced hearts on my back
scent of lavender swirling about

then cold sheets
and i realize
you are not here

you just never left

  1. Wow! You do romance and loss as well as you do mundanities and humdrums. The sense of loss is palpable yet your holding on to the traces is deeply deeply touching. Another beautiful write.

      1. A pleasure. I’m really enjoying your site/writing. Darkness, beautifully and thoughtfully handled. You constantly explore one of my favourite (as in to write and read) themes.
