When we fell out of Love


when we fell out of love
it was a storm of leaves
pieces of us fell everywhere
familiar spots, they fade like
fallen leaves that eventually bond
with eternity without a trace

    So few words and yet, saying so much. I like 'a storm of leaves, pieces of us fell everywhere' - describes it perfectly. Thank you, John, for this one.
