    Before…
    you leave me
    may I touch you
    indulge in the
    softness of your skin
    once again.
    cleanse in the glitter
    that shines
    from your spirit
    to make
    this day brighter

    Before…
    you shatter
    my fragile smile
    laugh with me
    one last time.
    Place
    your finger
    beneath my eye
    feel the moistness
    turn to tears
    so real they are.

    Before…
    you fade away
    thin into air
    stand still
    as I stare at you…
    treating my memory
    to a vivid picture
    of you still here
    so that
    I will have
    sweet dreams.

    Nice write amberly. When it's over it's over but that one last touch can make all the difference.

    Before and After

    Aye sis, long time no see. I was wondering where you were, and now I found you. I guess you had to be in the place with Ms. Destee, probably because of that Alabama-sista connection ;). I'm happy-glad that you got your HouseOfLove page up, though I haven't had the time to go through the whole site and read the guest poets pieces. I've gotta admit, I liked the picture of you on your old page,...your smile was bigger :D. I stumbled over here because you were here,....I thought I'd take a look around, and I liked what I've seen. If I had not mentioned it yet, I liked the flow of this recent piece here, and I always read whatever you put out on DPJ. I don't post there anymore, but I still go there because peeps like you still go there on and off, as well as other people that I've vibed with through their poetry.
    I think I'm gonna like it here. Don't ya just feel the love in here :heart: ?

    if he could turn one last time and wipe a tear from your eye..he would not be able to turn and walk away..this is beautifully, romantically bittersweet...
