No Longer – A Poem

portal-to-parallel-universe-1838

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;

nor do I 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.
