Love Lost

To live together as lovers

A shoe box size dorm is more

Than enough

Especially if life is lived by

Shared heartbeat.


The smallest table in the

Smallest corner serves greatly

As love has spurned on

Creative powers of the artistic



However the spouse you live

With for a life time

Had originally captured you

Fitting together physically and

Emotionally like hand in glove.


Yet nothing will stand still

Everything’s in flux

Like happiness and fulfilling

Love you’ll realize

Passing the half-century



She suddenly disturbs you

The artist at work

In a tiny corner of a kitchenette

Demanding an open door

As she pays half for the bedsitter.


If she just wouldn’t go in and out

To use the fridge

Every few minutes at a time.


Still you prevail writing your

Thoughts into your turquoise


Letting it go and then seek

To clear your mind

In hourly long walks

Calling up sweet memories

Crusting over all unpleasant

Happenings of advanced age

In partnership.
