Traces

love2She never knew
That convoluted love
The push and shove
Together but alone
It changes things
While she stands still
Waiting for the dawn
To bring her back to life
Fresh as morning dew
Or her bitter tears
When he said goodbye
Her forever love
That lasted a night
And left her wanting
A certain one-way love
Mirrored in her dreams
The margin of her eyes
Before they close again
In half stilted prayer
That calls him back
To her empty bed
And her empty heart
Trampled by a moment’s love
That came too soon
And left its traces
In her shifting sands.
