Day 10–Happy Anniversary


If you still don’t know what’s going on, see my original post here and be sure to donate if you’re able to CSMA (please give my name on the memo line).

Happy Anniversary

It’s been years, my love,
since our first dance.
I remember it with stars
and the whisper of your gown.
(Not as soft as your own whisper,
that sound that flowed like wine.
And no wine has been as sweet
as your soot-kissed skin.)
Your slipper still sits on the mantle—
shimmering impracticality.
But it seems duller somehow,
when compared to your blue eyes.

I suppose I haven’t said much—
there’s too much to tell.
I should tell you
it’s been cold.
I should tell you
my hair is graying.
I should tell you
the carpet in the foyer is worn.
I should tell you
happy anniversary.
And I should tell you
I miss you.
