Remnants

I name

The scuffs on my knees

The aches in my thighs

The stains on the sheets

These are

The only offspring

Of the moment

That we shared

They are

What I keep with me

After you take your leave

And seek your next moment

  1. This is quite special. I’ve come back to it now a dozen times. So much to explore in these few lines. Well done.
