Gone

Gone.*

She took the suitcase-

the dark blue one

from its place on the bottom.

Loud voices. Tears. Crash.

Five minutes later she was gone.

Where her clothes would hang

and fall

on the floor of the closet

are shadows

that whisper her name,

sounding out notes

that remind me.

Transparent contours

light and airy

are a fleeting memory.

I shut it out.

Close my eyes.

Small gasping breaths.

In out, in out.

Only my ears remain.

Listening, hearing.

Block it out.

CD’s, and useless chatter fill the air…

I run until I too am gone.

———–

Just for the record this poem is not at all applicable to my home life. I actually just started writing a random poem based upon the list I found at Maya’s wordpress blog and it became a poem that I kind of like. So there you have it 😀

    *gasp*

    Wowza.

    I’m trying to decide what my favorite line is. There are soo many! Currently it’s a toss up between “Where her clothes would hang and fall on the floor of the closet are shadows that whisper her name” and “sounding out notes that remind me.” and “Only my ears remain” and “I run until I too am gone.”

    WOW. Awesome.

    *gasp again*

    Yay, another interviewee!

    Interview Questions for Danielle from Mismatchedsockgirl:

    1. What’s the most overused word and/or phrase in your vocabulary?

    2. If there was only one beverage on the face of the earth, you would hope desperately that it’s…..

    3. You just discovered a working time machine in your backyard! Where are you going to go, what will you find and will you change anything?

    4. Bad habits: what’s your most prominent (or most problematic) one?

    5. If you were limited to only FOUR senses, which sense (taste,
    smell, touch, hearing, sight) would you be willing to give up?
