She Still SetsI do not get to taste her lips.More Like This
Not the tip. Not the tongue.
She’s gone, like the puff after a smoke.
And lucky me, I get to keep the ash.
I will never again feel her breasts pressed against my chest.
Or the warmth of her skin as it heats me through the night.
To giggle as we steal the air from each other’s breath.
Let last the imprint of her soul on the right side of my bed.
It’s how I want my sheets to smell in the morning.
Where I want to rub my hand to feel her memory.
And when the sun wakes me
I will use its rays to trace your outline
To stare for hours at the beautiful girl that once believed
We were the greatest thing in the world.
I dare myself not to blink, not to move, not to cry, not to think.
Because in every scenario
In every possible outcome that my imagination can muster
The sun still sets.
And she just fades away.
