something i’m working on….

Standard

reverberation

the lock’s click echoes
in my empty home.

you’re gone.

your laughter doesn’t resonate
down my hallway.
a few hours of silliness
over too fast,
hurried i love yous
down the stairwell.

once i was your whole world
now relegated to
an evening a week
an occasional weekend.

About ninian-poetree

I live in a sitcom. No seriously. I share a century home with an Englishman, my part-time sons, a step-daughter who visits every other year or so, a cat named Sophie and the latest addition, Hobart the (stuffed) monkey. I'm a mum, a writer, a teacher and an MUFC fanatic.
