Adieu

the heavens have opened up
i watch as the droplets baptise our window's
with a thousand blessings & several curses

the air is alive with our pheromones
the room is littered with traces of you
a love note pokes out from the side of my pillow

your sweet way of bidding adieu
as i nestle myself back into our love nest
i think of you, and the world we created
how our temporary forevers always feel like forever
then the sun comes up & you depart
taking our world with you.
