Poem: Living Alone

Leaves falling
with tenderness
No pedestrian at the crossing
The reflection isn’t me
after you’ve left
Your shadow is at every corner
Reminding me
Without you
I’m lonely

Getting used to live alone
Pretending that I
haven’t been in love before
Cold chilling night
heating tears to warm me
Love is over
I think I can get through this
Erase the memories
you’ve promised

This love
How can it end this way?

This love
Is like a dream
I’ve messed it up
I should be awake
By now.

    I am reminded of a scene in the musical CATS, the one with the song MEMORY.
    It’s urban and a bit grim; very human, it’s like everybody who has ever been lonely can relate to this poem. 😀
