A Poem by ScaryTrees

the chair where i left it
by dawn streaked window
sit and drink the coffee

plate and fork from last night
rest unabashed in the basin
stare outside at nothing

there is no one to tell me
the morning light on my face
makes me look younger

Kind of reminds me of my painting teacher if his wife were to die. He's an elderly, educated man that drinks his black coffee and stares cryptically out into the pale sunrise every morning before class.
It's an eerie thought to imagine him even more solemn and bitter than he is now. You've really captured a nice, provocative bit for me here. The poem is open enough to allow for personal expansion.

Beautiful. You capture the loneliness of losing someone and/or not having someone in a poignant and stark poem. Very concrete.

It has been a long time.. An extraordinary piece of work too. You have a very light touch with the details, and a deep grasp of the emotional value of words.

This reminds me of my old apartment up in Houghton Michigan during college.. You have taken me back in time with this.. That solitary feeling..sipping coffee and staring out the window... oh yes.. great write..x
