Remote

Updated on January 21, 2013

Here in solitary velvet dark,

breathing slow, feeling the last

remnants of your scent tingle and pulse.

I sprawl under sheets

grown cold and too much space.



A hole in one wall, a screaming memento of

excessive passion, your moans echo in my mind.

Love was our emotional Gibraltar,

so we would discover new kinds of ecstasy instead.



Now this abode is a black hole for new emotions,

I am a ghost in my own life, walking next to your

memory. When I leave, these dreams of you still

cling to me like smoke. Quit calling, quit coming around.



I remember the day you left me, blue eyes deep as the

Atlantic, stormy, and flashing. Your raven black hair falling

across your face as your hand fell across mine. Red hot fury

erupting from our mouths as we screamed.

      Perhaps someday I can try writing something that makes you feel better than you do now. I can't really touch your stuff though ;D

      Thank you Courtney! I like being able to stir that kind of emotion in you. That's a main reason to write!

      What you write evokes emotion. I don't like feeling vulnerable, but your writing makes me feel that way because I cannot stop or control the emotional reaction I have. Scary, but excellent. :)

      "I am a ghost in my own life, walking next to your

      memory. " Wow! How do you do it? This is so great! I love the way your described the hauntings of a bad break up, So often do the exes force themselves into you mind byt calling and showing up when you're just trying to get over them. But the birght side is you wrote an amazing poem about it!
