The Twenty-fourth

The Twenty-fourth

The day is very dark.
Heat without the sun.
The night’s artificial light.
Got all the answers right.

Ignored the simple truth.
Her love has passed my own.
Far beyond what I can grasp.

I can’t feel her anymore.
I know she spoke the truth.

She has finally left.
