It feels like you are coming back to me,
So I leave it all there.
Suddenly I know how it feels
To lose someone so close to your heart...
When you don't want to move anything
For the fear that they won't come back
If you make yourself realize they are gone.
That is how I feel...
But even if I don't change my sheets for a year,
It won't bring you back.
Even if I throw away the half-empty cigarette packs
You won't be back for them soon.
If I don't wash your pillowcase forever
It won't make you any closer to me.
Time stands still when you aren't with me
I can't find the right rhythm...
But, let me pause my world a little longer
Because it hurts too deep right now.
I don't want to get back to where I was before
Because I never knew your touch then.
I never knew how good it felt in your arms
Or how sweet and tender a kiss could be...
Just let me hold to your memories
Until we can be that close again.

(written months ago-a selection from my website....just reminiscing again...~m~)

Moonlight, I really like this poem... especially the part where you say "not washing your pillow case won't bring you closer to me..." I really like that. Thank you for sharing.

Wonderful writing...I loved it. It's the old cliche of "wearing his sweater just to smell him" expanded upon in prose for all to share.

I'm grateful for your verses, I like this piece. I would wish only this, that your strife is over soon.

I can relate, and wore that "sweater"... held on to those sheets. You captured the feeling very eloquently.
