She's gone! Only a pair of leather gloves that's left to remind me of her.
( This is a second poem extended to me by poet Norzah. I wish to thank poet Norzah for allowing it to be shared with others in Magpie. The first poem is here.)
Hugging the Night
I bumped into the thickness
Of the night's blackness
And broke my nose
What stupidity and recklessness.
Gazing too long at the blank
Of night without your smile
And knowing it wouldn't be there
For quite a long while
Though seldom do we meet
Each is a memory to keep
Remaining fresh like a plucked rose
Kept on water in sweet repose
Bon voyage to the morn
That will take her to distant shore
In her absence i'll hug the night
Hoping it'll break my nose no more.
