I Thought of You
I thought of you for days and months.
I thought of you in tempestuous storms
and insurgent gales.
I thought of you in bitter snow and
I thought of your beady eyes, your crooked nose
and twisted smile.
I thought of your debonair charm, your
You flitted in and out of closed doors,
oblivious or maybe aloof...
I thought of you while staring at
flickering candle flames.
I thought of you amid spindly leafless trees.
I thought of you on my visits to aureate minarets
and macabre tombs.
I thought of your lingering shadow on the walls.
I thought of your broken husky voice, your jerky gait.
I thought of you in the opalescent twilight.
I thought of you while savouring every
I thought of your unusual accent when I heard
the bullfinch sing.
Your deep, nasal drawl was music to my ears.
And days rolled into weeks...weeks into months.
And then it stopped.
I thought of you no more.
You were not a part of my reveries anymore.
I did not muse much on the change
in my disposition.
You ceased to exist in my realities galore.
You moved on and so did I.
