Default Re: Random Thoughts

I wrote this after my first wife died. It was a part of my trying to make sense of what had happened. She had peace, and she was gone. My 'hell' had just begun.

For Carol

I kiss your mouth
your breasts
your lips for the last time.

I give you breath you can't use
and so reclaim it
with the remnants of your last.

I leave the room
and return to find you haven't moved.

Lower the lids.
That's everything.

Love you to death.
