Poem of the Day: Monday Morning

Monday Morning
Blue like your eyes - sad like the Saints
It comes & you go taking your scent, shoes,
and my heart

3 days or 3 months, time's never enough.
There's always more music, more lovin' more
to say

I find the bed empty and so is my soul
memories of you all that holds me together
desperation, obsession, love - who knows?

All I know is I need you. And won't
do without any longer

I have seen good and can no longer
suffer mediocre
