The Dark End


The dark end of the empty street
is where her soul longs
to reside
cloaking her imperfections
hiding in the sombre night.

Her heart is full of rending grief
for he left her bereft
and alone
to face the world without him
for he was her only home.


She roams the cracked paths
in her mind
searching for a glimpse
of his shadowed face
and anything left behind.


But to her sorrowful anguish
there’s nothing but graying ashes
broken recollections
when she adored and cherished
a love of pure perfection.


Her only hope is someday
he will return again with a
magnificent smile
that she will always recognize
mattering not how long the while.
