#Acrostic: Leaves of Life Falling

Leafing through an old book
Earmarked pages
A photograph
Veiled, did not foretell
Eyes as blue as a robin’s egg
Smile that would light my days

Offering the anticipation of a kiss
Failed expectations at best


Lost soul at risk
Infused with pain
Fake exterior
Evil thoughts and deeds


Facsimile of who I loved
A replica of who I knew
Landing at my feet, autumn leaves
Leaving me breathless
In the past again
No painless memories
Good-bye once more.
