Fiction

When you were gone

It was the day before sun set

It was the night before moon rised

It was the stiff cold of night

Or the shining brightness of day

I don’t remember the time anymore

But I do remember

How your back looked

when you walked away


Your shadow seemed gray

Your shoulder carried the weight of gravity

that only got heavier as you walked

You said goodbye without looking back

And I was so out of it to reply

When I looked up with my pink eyes

You were gone

And I knew…

Life has taken you
