The Ghost of You

i woke up this morning
with liquid diamonds
in the corners of my eyes

i woke up feeling fading touches
from your invisible hands

and as i sat within the enveloping folds
of the crisp whiteness of what was our sanctuary
i swear i could detect a whiff of your
eau de toilette
intermingling with the morning breeze

a sharp and sudden pain exploded within me
causing my heart to constrict

scarlet agony

had you been visiting me my love
and why had you not been able to materialise?

this morning i felt so alone
in our bed
sitting for hours like a frozen statue of ice
slowly melting

this morning
i missed you so much

my love
who has left


To receive love, you have to give it...

scarlet agony

Parts of yours always JUMP out at me. This was the one. :)

Horrifyingly relatable, for me. A realization of a pain that comes ramming through the walls, even years and innumerable events later. So well written, douglas. Have read several times and it seems to become more real with each.
