The wound is fresh, the heart is broken, too many words are left unspoken. She left him once, she left him twice, to leave him with despair, demise.
Her smell still lingers in the air,
Leaving traces everywhere.
There is no back, there is no forth,
There is no south, there is no north.
Only here and only now,
What he can`t bear is the word how.
The mirror smiles back, all but a mask,
And leaves him with a bitter task.
A small hand grabs him,
„Daddy, what is wrong?“
Daddy knows, has to move on.
