The Last

there must be a last

Christina Strigas

You are the last of the Romantics

why have you forsaken me?

Left me here to swallow other people’s pills

I need your silence

as much as your words

 

Fly away

please do not come back for me

pass the laudanum

circa 1880

 

you in a top hat

long waist coat

my long hair piled high

a few loose ringlets

you, a latter-day poet

and I your muse.

  1. Love this….especially this part:

    my long hair piled high

    a few loose ringlets

    You have just described ever beautiful woman I have ever seen in any of my ancient or modern day daydreams. That look is so incredibly gorgeous to me!!

    Well done, Poetess. ♡
