No Longer – A Poem


No longer do I see me in your eyes,
Or feel weak when my lips kiss yours.
I no longer wish to have you ever so close,
Those days are a long and distant memory.

No longer do my eyes light up when I think of you,
Or laugh at the many faces you used to make.
I don’t think of the corny jokes you told at parties,
Or smell the aroma of your favorite oils and colognes.

No longer do I remember the distinctive way you walked,
I want to remember the sound of your voice as you talked.
If you could see me as I see you, then you would understand,
My energy never died or left my love, it just changed its form.
