After You’re Gone

Discovering your brown boots
And one by one
All the things you left behind
Books and keys
Clothes and receipts
Crumbs of us.
Some of you and some of me.


This was a surprise sort of short poem that just came to be because I was thinking about how it is the little things that remind us of the people we no longer have in our lives. It doesnโ€™t always have to be a better half, these verses work for every relationship weโ€™ve ever had that was so close to us. That we see the crumbs of a past frequently every day and we miss that person every single time that happens.
