LOVE POEMS

LOVE Staring into griefPOEMS

I no longer sit
Before the fireplace
(now cold, very cold,
With cigarettes, whiskey
And memories)
Writing down love letters 
And love poems
Full of hopes
And promises
Like many years ago

Forgive me, but…
Love poems are merely…
Lone words, full of
Requiems…without you,
Zinay,
Our promises are
””””””””””””””””””
“”””””””””””””””””
Leaking roofs
With wet eyes
When you left
With a last kiss
And now,
                                                                                                                                 I
Stand alone
With no one
                                                                                                                                  I
Stand alone
Hidden
From your laughter,
Watching
L                                    O                                       V                                             E
Letters distancing
Themselves like
Scripts of kisses
Notes of embraces 
Crafted into 
Epitaphs by
Quivering lips
And 
Withered hands;

In the middle
Of…
Nowhere
                                                                                 I                                              
Stand                                                                                                                   
Watching 
L                                    O                                       V                                              E

Letters dispersing
Themselves into 
………………………………
………………………………
Lone lines dotted
With nothing
But moments 
Awaiting 
Perfection
In the grave 

Watching 
Love collected
Into the last letter 
Of a sad narrative,
Into the last photo
Of lost faces 

Beloved,
Love letters,
Love poems
Are endless….
Declarations 
Of a soul
Awaiting 
Beginnings 
In the grave
