She’s Gone

Shes Gone short poem

Oh the difference
young, old, rich, poor,
squirming with words,
hitting the floor
squabbling, fighting, feeling sore.
a world of regret, I swallow and beget
this absence of you!
O! I wish I could turn words into wishes.
I wish my days would fall into line
I would rise for you
without the slightest disguise for you
since 1985 I have loved you, so
this evening is so heavy, the rain has been gone,
days’ and nights’ penumbras,
a swan song,
a softly weeping song,
for you.
rose garden, alley,
sweet white flowers above the drive
rain drops cling to petals,
mist in the garden hides
whispered absences of you,
softly seeping nuances,
echoes of your friends:
end of days in Palo Alto,
heavy music in the air,
stretching of reality,
and you ain’t there,
shadowing the shadows
words remembering words:
holding you as a baby
your hand in mine as a schoolgirl,
waiting for you outside the youth club,
O! these memories flare into the living air,
and you ain’t there.

Gone And Departed

Gone And Departed long poem

Hearts shed people throughout life- like broken angels crossing time- in the form of lovers and loved ones. Some wake you up after they’re gone- others startle you as they depart. Lovers depart like a fife- cutting silence with great
