She

          like a shamed, young child

carried

          her belongings down the corridor, to the jet that would take her to the city

          of strange faces.

My

          tongue struggled to form the words of farewell,

heart

          afraid to release what was held on to for six years.

With

          departing love came endless streams of tears, of which she had never seen

          of me before.

Her

         perfume still teases my nostrils, her smile like a film trilogy replaying in my collapsing

         memory...

To

       forget would bring a massive, black hole to form inside me, in the heart of a man

       she once loved; the man who had rescued her from the embers of a plane crash, going

       from LA to

Denver.
