Fandango’s Friday Flashback – January 17th

For some reason in my years of blogging I seemed to skip over the 17th for some reason.  I only found two I had posted.  This week I share the one from last year.  A poem about the loss of my ex-husband to alcoholism.  It was originally posted here.

Sharing this for FFF.

Haunting Questions

I wonder if
You still exist
Is your spirit
Still in pain
Do you feel
The least remorse
For leaving her
Without a father
Can you see
The woman she is
In spite of
What you did
Or is there
Nothing but darkness
In your afterlife

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – November 1

This weeks FFF takes me back two years to this post that was for the word prompt ghoulish…

 

Your Spirit

On a dark night

In the city graveyard

ghoulish site

Stopped me in my tracks

A ghostly figure

Floated above your tombstone

It turned as if it saw me

They quietly faded away

I often wonder why it left

If it was you

And will it ever return

I know you’re gone for good

But part of me wishes

I could see a shimmer of you

Just for a second

To smell your cologne in the air

To see you smile

To hear you laugh

If only…
