Too Painful

Original image found here

It’s too painful to be here
in this city full of souls 
I am alone and disoriented in the streets.

Winter has taken over
the familiar venues are so cold
the food has no taste and the coffee is weak.

After all this time
my body aches with the loss of warmth 
and the soothing sounds of conversation.

There’s no love in this city anymore,
it’s just too painful to be here…
nothing’s the same since you left.

      1. Rashmi, you have such a beautiful soul. I am doing well on my end. I wrote a few lines of this a while ago and only managed to completed it recently. Rest assured, this is not confessional poetry 💜💜💜
