She lingers with him
well after she has departed.
Cinnamon and flowers
Like the warmth of nostalgia
shrouded by decaying images.
Her essence remains
Memories of her sweet and gentle nature
endure to cast their shadows
across the remnants of his shattered soul.
The tranquil engage she possessed
that once moved his conscientiousness
beyond the point of tangible emotions
Has disappeared among the stillness
which arises after the last, greatest exhale is produced.
Leaving only granite reminders
of humanity's vulnerability
