You sent me messages after your death
in paper headlines (Yes! He Will Be Back!)
and German number plates containing words
the meaning only you and I would know.

Maybe I should have let your presence go;
it’s true that thinking of you always hurts,
but I can feel your eyes still in my neck
as I do sense the sound of your cold breath.

  1. Haunting and powerful as always. I know I keep saying how I love your verses and the sensibility behind them, but I do. Thats the truth of it

  2. Good one, Ina! πŸ™‚
