Aftermath - Poem by Kevin East

The aching silence
Of loving you alone.
You lay with me
Though you're not there.
Our kisses
Hang in the air
Like some forgotten cologne
You used to wear.
I watch you sleeping
On bed of rose petal.
How can I settle
For less.
Empty arms
Grieve sweet caress.
I talk to you
In lonliness.
As you drift
Through my soul.
A recurring dream
The black night stole.
And the madness
That follows sadness
Leaves me on an island
A flower cut down.
Before it had grown.
