Do you ever

Do you ever think of me?

On moonlit nights

with jasmine thick in the air ;

can you feel my heartache?

Do you ever hear my whisper?

During candlelit dinners

love songs playing in the background;

can you feel my sorrow?

Do you ever catch my scent?

Under starlit skies

diamonds glitter in the night and hand

can you feel my despair?

Shards of time

slivers of silence

dreams that turned to dark ashes.

I was on my knees,

begging for one more chance

only to be cast aside with casual disregard.

Do you ever…….

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
