Unceremonious Parting

I heard

In that grave silence


Shouting to me in whispers

“She is gone for good.”

I felt

This freezing coldness


These lips

You at one time kissed.

I tasted

From Eden’s honey pot

Venomous sweetness


My dry tongue.

I smelt

From corrupted blooms

Carrion fragrance


A broken heart.

I saw

In my teary blindness

No light at the end

So I journeyed on

…stumbling and chorusing…

“And I got to pick myself up.”
