tonyv Posted December 2, 2017 Share Posted December 2, 2017 She left it all behind; there's no one here. For all the drinks, whatever else we wanted, I had her heat and everything she flaunted -- to drink her eyes, her hands, her mouth, her smile -- and all of it was wine a little while. A drop from the top -- why this fall? Undaunted, she left it all behind to be alive, and I'm not anywhere. Another bottle for this oenophile -- it's for stupidity that I'm on trial like Bendrix at the end of the affair. She left it all behind. _______________________________________________The End of the Affair -- a novel by British author Graham Greene with several film adaptations Quote Here is a link to an index of my works on this site: tonyv's Member Archive topic Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
