Bittersweet

Sweeter than a cherry

Softer than the bear you left me

Walking down the street

Pass that face you’ll never meet

Sit beneath the elm tree

Smile because the grass is green

Stare into bliss

 

Days pass by

Rolling into weeks

 

Rain drips down

Fallen leaves

Scuffle and bustle

Along an empty street

Cold wind

Slaps cheeks

Unforgivingly

 

“Tell me,

Why you left me?”

Asked to no one

in particular

 

Grey clouds form

storms greater

with intention

 

I sit beneath this elm tree

Silent because the grass is green

Staring into the abyss

A face I never knew

To even miss

It’s all so bittersweet.
