The Web Poetry Corner - J D Cully - Marathon

Marathon

by

J D Cully

That evening in the cafe never leaves me
A decade's service gone with a vanished friend.
Lost messages and useless answers assail me,
Knowing the final lucid light is snuffed.

2 become 1
1 lost without her

A tired voice rambles in the background
Recycling suggestions already rejected
Eventually I close my eyes and think of Vectis Road.

Silently as a Sunday
Her name froze on the winter air
I watch the London Marathon and sigh.
Tomorrow the weather might be fine.
