1st Day of Autumn

Greens have given way to yellows
Warmth has given way to numb
Bikinis have given way to jackets
Religion has given way to football
Graduations have given way to shitty jobs
Education has given way to school
Hope has given way to reality
Peace has given way to war
Bounty has given way to dearth
Dry has given way to rain
Sunshine has given way to moon light
Warmth has given way to wind
Bright has given way to grey
Forest has given way to fire

The absent sound of you playing guitar
Has given way to the strings
of my heart

  1. Oooooohhh . . . damn. You’ve captured perfectly the sinking feeling of loss.

    I’m always impressed (and touched) by your gift of putting the weight of your pain on the written page in a such a gentle and haunting way.
