New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

The seeker

Though his will to remain is
Ever true
His flagging body
Tells him
His time in this domain is
Almost over…
His search made him
A nomad of
The world…
He’s seen glimpses of
Her smile
A gesture
A laugh
But always it was
Someone else…
His nights
Brought some relief
For
His skin remembered
Her touch;
An imprint left
Where she once laid
Upon his breast…
Today though is different
His breath quickens
Sightless eyes;
Give him no
Hint of where he is.
Reaching out in anticipation
The aching cold
Of stone
Doesn’t deter him
A pent up tear
Holding forty years
Of hope
Is finally shed
He crumples to
His knees
Runs his hand tenderly
Along the curve of
Her hip
Hears her chiding laugh
In response
With a sigh
Lays down beside her
It is time
And eternity is
Finally theirs…
