[Poem] Quietly Questioning


I weave through winter memories
In search of the pieces that you left
Through this series of quite questions
And your constant anecdotes
I trip over your scent and wonder,
How long I will allow
This distance to evoke me?
This one seems to hold one tightly.
Yet I fumble and fall over
Your words.
Because you have left them lying
And they’re in my way.

(c) Shelley Blake, 2008

  1. I trip over your scent and wonder,
    How long I will allow
    This distance to evoke me?

    There is a deep feeling here ..
