I will not miss you

I will not miss you

I will not miss you when winter darkens the sky and snowflakes kiss my skin. When the fire burns bright in the hearth and the candles flicker their yearning ghosts upon the wall.

I will not miss you when spring breaks the soil with green, and silently buds the shivering trees. When pale hearts are made bold by the rising sap and cupid’s sweet festival.

I will not miss you when summer spreads itself before me in wild and glorious heat. When my skin feels the sun caressing it like a lover, like an angel, like a pretty girl.

I will not miss you when autumn reminds me of solemn promise stolen by sad circumstance. When the rain trickles down my cheeks and beneath my collar and hides my stupid tears.

I will not miss you

I will not miss you

I will not miss you

I wrote this ages ago and had forgotten it, but it turned up exactly one year ago when I was looking for something else. On a grey and miserable day I thought it deserved a fresh airing.

    Sounds like you missed her, or is it just me?

    Wistful longing beautifully expressed, written and audibly. Your choice of one of my favorite artists, Jack Vettriano a perfect touch. Reminds me of the movie, Phantom Thread. Smiles.
