But Still

18 Jul

But Still


There is a distant echo of your touch

Upon my skin

The faintest of memories

But still

A remembering

Of something soft and special

And intimate and close

And of days when we

Had more than most.


The passing years have been less kind

To me than you

These deep cobwebs of age

But still

This desire burns through

To see you dressed in evening clothes

And your blue eyes darkened

And you gliding like a dream

Proudly at my side


This tired and quiet heart still quickens

When you are close

Triggered by your body’s scent

But still

It makes me catch my breath

Like no other has ever done

And can ever do again

And I ache for you

The way I did back then.

      She has.
      The poem anyway. I’m not sure, in these days of reconciliation, it would be wise to show her the blog.

    i rember the days when i could say with full honesty that HE TOOK MY BREATH AWAY.
    But as of late i do not feel that same rush of emotions, only empty sadness. And with all of my heart i wish he still left me breathless.

    If your heart still quickens when she is close, then I don’t understand why no compatibility. Have you ever considered introducing her to your dark world?
