moving on

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on

the house is empty except

a few boxes scattered about

only a couple of pieces

of unwanted furniture

are left behind

half of a lifetime

was taken away

all that is left

is the discarded pieces

of the life i wanted

and the lonely echoes

of our last goodbyes

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – lonely

One and Only

Just in time

Let’s start a rhyme

One of love

Sent from above

About devotion

And a lot of emotion

One never ending

It’s affection I’m sending

Straight to your heart

It’s where it all starts

So believe me when I say

I love you today

And for ever after

I’ll shout it from the rafter

You are my one and only

Without you I am lonely
