Linger.

by Blissful   Nov 12, 2009


In an attempt to erase
aching recollections
failed, for you still
...linger

That arousing aroma
once tousled my locks
with it's devilish hooks.
Now remains as a stench
dug deep within my skin
spewing rancid memories.

Teasing of has been's
and forget me not's,
all you do is
...linger

Those enticing eyes
once girdled a fairytale
with no ending in scene.
Now stitched in torment
carved by a lover's allure.
Reminiscence of yesterday

...yet you linger.

Perhaps your presence
shadows my every move
for I wish to cling to faith
a moment longer, in hopes
it does not betray my trust.

I catch sight of those eyes
in the distance
as they lock
with mine.

And your haunting scent
invades my essence
for I am not ready,
to release

Linger...
and we'll intertwine
in my dreams.

    Perhaps one well deserving of the win. The poem has deep sentimental value, it seems. The best stanza for me was:

    Those enticing eyes
    once girdled a fairytale
    with no ending in scene.
    Now stitched in torment
    carved by a lover's allure.
    Reminiscence of yesterday

    ...yet you linger.

    A very relatable one indeed. Still haunts me today.
