2nd Hand...

Rating: 5.0
Combing through the mess you left behind...
I dig for remanants of attitude...
For aspects,
Hidden...
In loose socks and
Wadded-up efforts
Of penned prose
To me...
Of empty wrappers,
The labels of your taste...
The essence of you...
Surrounding and within your
Pile
Of left over
Dreams...
Your throw ways-
Of meaninglessness...
That still haunt me
In the corners of
My mind
2nd hand treasures, once
Worthless now...
As the fading day
Dies slowly in the west...
Realization that there
Is nothing worthwhile left-
Of what once was
Our cozy love nest...!

Marci, Thank you dear heart. Writing about my first husband...My ex... My horrible experience...Back in the day...when Fluff was a kitten... When Seattle was growing, and the Space Needle Glowing, and love was in the air, and next came my despair! Merci beau coup' Marci! :)

Yes, David... This was written years and years ago...the relationship broken, with no hope of repair. Thank you for taking the time to read this and comment. Your comments are so very much appreciated! Theo

Theo, a sad poem as someone trolls through the things to find something of value of a relationship no longer there and ultimately nothing. Great writing my friend. Top marks and thanks for sharing it. David
