You Always Leave...me to November




 PAD challenge day 1: write a stay/leave poem/poems


To know joy
Is to know grief
You always leave
An echo-land
Of fallen leaf
And lemonade reprieve

While, on the fringe
Of what once was
Waits what will be
The loss of you
Sweeter because
Of words like ‘we’

You always leave
Futile to grieve
Your stricken form
The corpse of summer
Lies in leaves
Of echo-storm

The aster
Cannot master
More than you or I
The wraith-like Chief
That scatters leaf
Beneath the sky
