…Stop haunting me with her scent
I turn and it’s you!
Can’t you understand I must go into hiding?
veiling my heart from this pain
the choking reality of her
Take my shoe and go
She took everything else
Wagging your tale wont do
I have no room for humanity
what saith yoou?
I am weary of this night
of this heart flailing to take flight
if I must have a friend
it will be you
for you too have lost the best friend you could know
her scent is still on my hand
yes I know
Thanks to Tess Kincaid for a very interesting Magpie Tales photo prompt. If anything can warm a heart, its a Lab!

You managed to embed the emotions well in this short poem.
Your images are so very real…..you carried me swiftly with great emotion! Thanks!
yes, well done – i could have been there…
Is that you? I love the poem above. Poignant.
Ever since One Stop Poetry ceased, I haven’t been visiting much. Many things have happened – writing ferociously has been the centre of it all.
Cheers and take care.
Oh so sad but so beautifully written.
A bit suipsrred it seems to simple and yet useful.
From the ‘man’s best friend’ perspective!! My grandchildren have a black lab named Patton!!!
The lab is an amazing loyal beast / truly a friend in dire times
