where do I put it now?
you left words in my heart,
perceptions in my mind,
what meaning have they now?
you left a chasm I cannot renegotiate,
questions I cannot take to task
you left yourself all around me,
memories of you loiter loosely at my door
I see your hands working on something,
I relive the kiss you gave once more
the gaze you tossed in my direction,
left a permanent dent on my restraint
you left a beginning to brown,
you left no excuse in the middle
you left me with unfinished wisdom,
and an end,
nowhere in my line of vision.
