As You Leave

It’s time now for you to leave
Your incense
burns beneath my feet
As I stand lonely
near the yellowed decks
of a marooned wharf,
the tamarind day melts away.
Cloudless dreams heave
into the ocean
of your dying twilight.
Your half-parted gloveless lips
are a cold stony silence
of a lost ecstasy
or the cathedrals
of muted surrender?
Your touch of empty Vaseline
and the murmur of nail polish
on your parched feet
fades.
Dust mites
of my leafy existence
hover near your eyes,
dissolving
in the papery fringe
of your breath.
And as the abandoned waves
of my dry sea
drown in the mirth
of your darkness,
I know you have to leave.

She leaves
And leaves behind

Love

Destroyed.

GAWD! I am flabbergasted! I think you have made the two ends meet; the poem not only delineates unfathomable depth of emotions, but also conveys the connotation effectively.
