Reminders

by Anonymous

You left several strands
of hair
scattered across my
sheets
you left your yellow
toothbrush
on the top shelf
of my bathroom cabinet
you left your white lacy
G-string
in the pocket of my
bathrobe
you left your pink lip gloss
with the glitter
on my dressing table
you left my alarm clock
set at 6:45 a.m.
you left your new novel
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
unread
we both left so much
unsaid
but most of all
you left your scent
buried deep inside my
pillow
and even though it's been
six nights now and I've changed
the bed linen
rearranged the bathroom
cabinet and the dressing table -
placed your book in my bookcase
thrown out your G-string
your lip gloss
and your yellow toothbrush
your scent is making my eyes
watery
and still I can't escape you.
