Forever Changed

  The day is thick with an inconsolable ache,a longing unfulfilled.To see you once again, To touch your face, your hands. To lose myself in your embrace,Enjoying the musky smell of you.I immerse myself in the things of "us".Music and photographs surround mein a manic swirl.The yesterday memories,all but a fading recollection to which I cling tightly,with a death grip.I wake alone, my love,Grasping for what once was.Struggling to comprehend the lunacy of it all.Forever changed.Without you, I exist, forever changed.

Diving deep into the void, the dream embraces.Left swirling in the current,pushing in and outagainst me.The salty mist stings my nostrils.As the tide retreats its angry dance,consuming in its effort to create anew. All that was before is gone.

Remembering You...Remembering Us

Sweet love of mine, in this very moment I lose myself in memory.I clearly see your eyes, bright with the excitement of our latest adventure.My hand rests firmly in yours as we savor the experience together.I find comfort in remembering you like this.The sight and smell of you plays vividly in my mind.I cling to my imagination in this bittersweet moment,as if the sad truth could be undone.You are gone from me for now, my love,but I have only to close my eyes to recall the memories of "us",stored safely in my broken heart.
