Penelope’s Poems

Well, old friend, you’ve left me.

Fate has snatched you in your prime

And not even time

Will blur your memory


Guilt hovers like a crow,

Ready to peck my tear dry,

Saying “Did I try

Enough?”  I’ll never know.


I watched you grow lifeless;

Pain of death clouding your eyes,

Showing no surprise

As you felt my caress.


Then as you breathed your last,

The obscenity of death

Cast its own foul breath

And placed you in my past
