After You'D Gone - Poem by Laurie hill

After you'd gone,
I watched until the darkness hid you.
Pressing my cheek gently, softly,
against the cool window pane.

Frost, like an angels brooch, melted slowly upon the glass
as did my memories, unclear,
of days long past.

    You set the stage amazingly in the first stanza and the second one is a work of art all by itself! (Report)Reply

    Though brief, this is about as well written a poem as can be, Laurie. Your phrasing is exquisite in every line and your very well chosen words are tremendously effective in conveying your thoughts and emotions. There are few poets on any of these internet poetry sites whose poems are as eloquent and wonderfully written as your poems are. You are an exceptionally gifted poet. Carl. (Report)Reply
