Donnie Wolff


Of Purfume And Hollow- Points


Its true,

that with you I could have love.

But one thing I will have never,

is forever.

It is not appointed to me.

To retain, to remain.

I am entitled only to your taste.

To your minimal touch.

To your reality,

I am just a memory.

A ghost

of which I live with many.
