Mildly

Days go by mildly now,
your scent has left the building
and the weather might improve at last.
I can not complain too much.
Days go by mildly now.

We did some universal stuff at times,
remember, like watching a full moon
and making love on a bed with rose petals
but in my memories
those moments have a kitschy flair.

There was a goodbye in every sentence,
even the items on the table
that were there silently,
seemed to scream it out:
Over. Over. Over.
A scissor made me think of pain.

I shall take the kitschy moments
to remember you by mildly,
but not yet. As for a while
I need the pain to understand.
I put the items in a drawer
and clean the table with my tears.

  1. “I put the items in a drawer ” – and in time the drawer must be emptied as well “[the] scent has left the building”

  2. You are on a roll with fantastic poems Ina! This is great! So much in it. “”your scent has left the building and the weather may improve at last” Thats a terific line. I also lice “as for a while I need the pain to understand”. We do indeed beed pain for a while.
