Yet while I could never

love again

the body that has lain

in the arms of another,

I will remember

every single embrace

the touch of her perfect skin

on mine

    If you don’t mind me saying, I love the vulnerability and humility in your writing.

      Smiles. Thank you. I don’t put it there on purpose. It must just creep in.

    This was so very beautiful. The memories are so painful to me, yet you find joy in them. I wish I could see it more like you.
