Without A GoodBye

You departed stealthily
without a word
without a smile
without a simple good-bye

Where is your care of yesterday
where is your love of yesternight
where is your hug of love

I long for that smile
that dances on your succulent lips
that removes my pains

You departed without
the courtesy of a good bye

I will stand at the gate
to welcome your return.

a romantic poem that maintains worthyness... the diction holds some real pearls!

the kind of love not many people have... in fact, most would find the gate closed and locked... sad, beautiful, love is in these lines :)

Romantic and out of the world. Transparent and springing from a broken heart.
