Where Have You Gone - Poem by Mari Evans

Where have you gone

with your confident
walk with
your crooked smile


why did you leave
me
when you took your
laughter
and departed
are you aware that
with you
went the sun
all light
and what few stars
there were?


where have you gone
with your confident
walk your
crooked smile the
rent money
in one pocket and
my heart
in another . . .

    I really like this poem, especially that last verse:
    where have you gone
    with your confident
    walk your
    crooked smile the
    rent money
    in one pocket and
    my heart
    in another...
