"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

drying dead roses
as haunting as your absence
love’s bloom now ashen

- 0 -

a single tear fell
grief for only a moment
i will not miss you
 - 0 -

appetite suppressed
now lonely dining for one
your absence consuming
