Her Wake

Letting go of her now
With the wind in my face
Off my stretched fingertips
Slipped from her last embrace

Her hair’s flowing fresh scent
Persisting in the winds wake
Heels hammering regret
Finding her intentions were fake

Written in three short verses
How ambivalence can wrong
Emptying my heart’s desire
In presenting this song

  6. The pain of letting go is one sadness but knowing it was mixed with faked emotions — bowls one over with draining sentiments! Nicely done 🙂
