Love’s Past

Love’s Past

in love’s past I lurked
checking on family exiled
from the compound
but her soul remains
spattered on my walls

I once used a shovel
to scrape off old paint
add color more vibrant
but her touch, a mold
extracting unsuccessfully

so I embrace the need
to breathe her in till death

forever one
forever was
forever loved
