Since She Left


Days drip by
as sweat,
coursing slowly,
dehydrating hope,

since she left.

Stench of her loss
is still upon my skin,
as I grieve
and
as I breathe.

this foul odor.

~Michael Auguste~

Stars will shine when I am gone
Earth will spin on as before
Gulls still race along the shore
Morning star, still kiss the dawn

~ M. Auguste

This is vividly expressed.  I could sense it all.  You write of life so well.

Take care,

Quite the stark image you paint with this one my friend. You convey the feeling very vividly in these words.

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?
