And I wait……

NaPoWriMo 21

April 2 nd

Thank you –

For letting bits and pieces

Of our love

Trickle into the vacant spaces

Of  my heart.

I still love you –

Like the fading light

That clings to the sky at dusk,

Awaiting its return

From the cool embrace

 Of the star clad night.

I gather  the scattered dust of betrayal

And let them swirl

In the placid waters of my love.

And I wait…..

Foolishly perhaps ;

For your breath to graze past my lips

As you  whisper to me

In gentle tones,

A single word – sorry.


What do you think?

That's How it Had to End
