Loveless Days by Richard LeDue

Richard LeDue | June 8th, 2024 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

An empty wine bottle makes love
to a rose, even if you don’t remember
where the flower came from
or how the wine stained another night,

leaving your yearning for love desperate,
like someone who overthinks
making their bed
as a way to smother their loneliness,

while strangers at a bus stop haunt
tomorrow, believing more in silence
than where a nervous hello
might take them.
