The summer sun has faded,

the skies grow dim

leaving way to

the dampness of autumn.

~

The beauty does not comfort me

any more than your picture

on my nightstand

comforts me.

~

This background serves no purpose,

only what”touches me” is truth,

the dampness touches me.

not the warmth of colors,

~

you no longer touch me,

there is no warmth to be found

in your hands just the feel

of the cold damp earth.

~

The sun no longer shines,

it no longer warms me,

you were once my sun.

You no longer warm me,

~

only the cold damp air holds me,

I no longer feel

the warmth of your embrace,

it too has faded and grown cold.

~

I am held only by the cold,

cruel emptiness

of winter.

~

You are gone

and no longer

hold me.

~

Without you I am exposed

to the elements

of earth, and heart,

you no longer shelter me.

I

am

cold

and

alone.
