…Stop haunting me with her scent

I turn and it’s you!

Go away!!!

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?

Man’s best…

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!

  1. Dear Leslie,
    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.


  2. I have not checked in here for some time as I thhguot it was getting boring, but the last several posts are really good quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend.
