The Presence of YouA Poem by Lumière Déclinante
I can recognise your footsteps coming up the stairs
And hear your quiet humming by the door.
A smile appears, I say your name and go to see you there
And remember that you never are anymore.
At night I feel your breathing and your body next to mine
When its silent and there are no lights on.
Then I reach behind me so our hands can intertwine
And realise too late that you are gone.
Sometimes I unlock the door and call out your name
Just to let you know that I am home.
I wait a while and listen thinking you will do the same
My anticipation chills me to the bone.
At times of desperation, I sit and will you to return.
I feel you hiding through the fog and rain.
There are times I feel alone but I will have to learn,
I never am, for you run through my veins.

AboutHi :) My real name is Anna, an Irish person would hardly have the name Lumière Déclinante. In my defence, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I sort of do that a lot. Start things t.. more..
