No ending

The memory

Of her

Skin,

Vanishes

Like the smoke

Rings

Leaving my lips

And evaporating

In the air

Above my head.

But it never

Goes away

Far enough-

Instead

She haunts

Me

And my thoughts,

My days,

My nights,

My dreams,

My nightmares.

The end

Is

Never

“The end”…

Never

An ending

Like an old movie

That closes neatly

With black and white

Confirmation

That it’s over.

This ending

Is

Much less

An ending

And much more

A purgatory

Of desire

And longing

That goes on

Forever

Without fulfillment.
