A Parting

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe  (Devereux & Beth)

Use the phrase, "in the fading light"


Twilight drew near,
he blotted her tears,
believing he must serve.
In the fading light, she
looked at him. He seemed
to be already gone.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
