EMBERS

Months have passed
and you are still with me.
Everywhere I go I sense you,
woven into the walls,
the landscape, the ceilings,
the flowers. I sit here
where once we stayed,
watching the fire dying, sparks
writhing like glow worms in the ashes.
You lay here and laughed.
You sat here and smiled.
I took a photo where
your eyes revealed your
longing, your look revealed
your love; the sofa where
you told me I made you
feel like a woman,
just as you made me
feel like a man.
I loved you fiercely,
Now I miss you fiercely.
Months have passed
and I have not forgotten you.
I pace the room waiting
for the moment
which will wash you from me
forever. You are written
in me like Scripture.
Your heart rules
the hours.
