Gone Girl

Gone Girl

It pains: the memory of your caress.

  Limbs ache with loss, craved tenderness undress.

  Of burnished lips, unthinking clasped within,

  Warmth turned to grief and hunger turned to sin.

  Stay awhile longer in my mind’s embrace.

  Don’t smother yet that moment’s lingered grace.

  Let dreams stay true, and truth remain a dream.

  In frenzied gasps to yours again I lean.

  Seismic waves atoned for unremembered past.

  The subtext veiled, your passion could not last.

  And when your softness hardened to a lie,

  The last to know that you were gone was I.

  Death buried all under its bluish light.

  Another fall, another cut mid-flight.

  1. The Love Gone
    The Bitter Embrace
    Turned Away
    As touched your face
    Love is gone
    Been long flown
    Twas once a happy home
    Not tempted
    Love’s Broken
    Of Marriage vows
    sadly misspoken
    In the wind
    Love is blind
    But not once
    You’ve changed your mind

  2. That’s some fantastic word choice. Effortless rhyme and great structure. Very strongly felt. Thank you for sharing.
    ‘ Let dreams stay true, and truth remain a dream.’
    ‘And when your softness hardened to a lie,’
    ‘Death buried all under its bluish light.
    Another fall, another cut mid-flight.’
    My four favorite lines… 🙂
