Your Smile Lingers In My Mind

Poetry Oct 28, 2021
I was in the mood for a home session of images. I completely forgot how challenging using the timer could be.

You are gone, your smile lingers
In my thoughts at random times
Still feel your skin under my fingers
We rode this train till end of line

The blanket still carries your smell
A stray hair still tickles my nose
It's your looks on which I dwell
As you fell asleep and rose

You seemed relaxed amidst the chaos
Seemed to need me needing you
We belonged right where we lay as
My fingers were greeding you

I can not bring myself to miss you
It hardly feels as if you're gone
We went and healed each other's issues
This was a fight that we both won

I write whenever the mood strikes or strokes. Things get weird sometimes, but then that's why you're here.
