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 changed form and went back to where it began.
