Captive

Wafts

Aromatic

Held captive

By

Cockles

Of heart

Got jolted

Today

I’ve always

Considered

None superior

To your

Wrist flicks

Flavorfully

speaking

Your dishes

Had that extra

Something

None could

Replicate~

Love, pure

Limpid

Enhanced

Every served

Tit bit!

Today

I caught myself

Short, at the upswing

of maudlin

In self pity, as I

Hesitated at the brink

Of being sucked

In, a familiar

Whiff knocked

my nine pins

Knocking sense

Into me~

You’ve been gone

Decades, still you linger,

Never abandoning

your youngest~

When I see a clear impassive

Face, I see you~ when a child

Sidles up to me trustingly

We are as one~

Temples, monks

Holy chants

Conjure your

Dear face~

I see you everywhere

Feel the heat of your love

and I quickly hug myself~

You reside within

And what my senses

Experience, is you

Speaking to me

Plain and

Simple~

I’ll now go stand

In the light

Where

I belong

As you

Placed

Me there

Before

You left~
