By the numbers: to Love

A thousand miles of memories
have passed since our goodbyes
Hard to believe
it was yesterday
A hundred songs I’ve sung
poetic verse that stung
Lips wet to kiss
forbidden today
A score of sightings thought to be
you in periphery
Simple ghost tale
one haunted by love
A dozen days of purgatory
from town-to-town sans you
Eternal wind
born wild and free
A single door that separates
passion from pleasure
Treasures unfurled
turn key and open
Joy
Jubilation
Ecstacy
Euphoria
She never stopped waiting for you
