Empty rooms

Empty Rooms (2005)

I have put out the light.
Snuffed each candle with
wet fingers. I would
rather be in the dark
where the scent of smoke
still lingers. I have drunk
enough for tears but not
yet enough for forgetting.
Your ghost is still too warm
and your breath still fills
these empty rooms.
