Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of August.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of August.

There is a place
In my heart for you.
It was always there.
It took residence
From the start.
A play house
In my soul.

Sugar coated,
Until the sweetness
Of those early years
Hardened the shell.
And the loss
Of you,
Was trapped inside.
A cell,ooo
Of my own making.

Even then
With every bad call,
Stumble and fall,
I was spurred on
To love you more.

Even before you left,
I had wearied
Of the ache
I held for you.
Lost in the shadow
Of my hope,
Before darkness
Held itself
A velvet,
Starless sky,
That still
Enfolds me.

Each time
Another soul dies,
And the sorrow
Of their loss
Is thrown before me,
I remember you.
And the hole
In my heart
Is filled, with
A vast endless trough
Of loss,
Once more.
And every yesterday,
Becomes today.
