Poem: Reminisce


By: Joi Maree Flowers

That voice that whispered my name softly into my ear
That arm that wrapped tightly around my waist
That kiss that gently graced my shoulder
That love of him I felt all over

A use to
But no more

That morning smile that I'd awakened to
That second breath inhaled of his scent
That goodbye that felt different than before
  A hello again to never be heard

So soon
So gone

That lateness in the day when no thought of him visited to remind
That nightmare 'round midnight when I saw him again through a yesterday's rewind
A love that once loved before
Left without reason on the other side of a closed door

A heart torn
A past mourned
