#NaPoWriMo-Day 15-Memories and Wishes


I keep my memories
and wishes
tucked inside a box The vessel unimportant Its what’s inside the box that calls to me Inside I hear the beating of your heart smell your skin and taste your lips you
now on wingtips

left behind memories
nestled beside wishes Copyright © 2021 Penny Wilson

Telling My Secrets to the Stars


I awoke

with a start. 

The taste

of your kiss

still lingering

on my lips. 

For answers

I look

to the night sky,

telling my secrets

to the stars. 

The man in the moon

listens

but offers

no guidance.

Back Then


Yesterday's ink 
gives a view 
into my thoughts 
of you 
back then  

Back then 
I knew 
what love was 

or thought I did 

Back then, 
tomorrow
seemed 
such a long way off  

Today's view 
has been tarnished 
by the 
soot 
on the panes of glass  

Smoke 
from the fire 
that once burned 
in my heart   

For you  

Back then

Puzzle Pieces


My puzzle pieces 
                                                          
I've carefully 
numbered them                                                   

Each                                                                                  
a part of me                                                                    

I see them                                                                          
cast aside

carelessly
heartlessly

Fitting them
together
in your absence

inconceivable.
