Where Have You Gone by Mari Evans

Swagger

Where have you gone

with your confident
walk with
your crooked smile

why did you leave
me
when you took your laughter
and departed

are you aware that
with you
went the sun
all light
and what few stars
there were?

where have you gone
with your confident
walk your
crooked smile the
rent money
in one pocket and
my heart
in another…
