another night fades
as the first one to go ~
and tonight there’s a quiet
the lonely heart knows
as the place
once adorned by a voice
on the line

by the passing of time

Subconscious to the feel of

your phantom hand at the angle of my

At dawn your shirt hangs from a

Closet door in the buttery sunlight

and I become so small I could slip

inside the lining of your chest

sheltered by your warm skin where I

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

For Daddy…I miss you  ❤


When I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, a tugging at my heart

I tend to putter around the house, looking a bit lost

I am hoping to find that ray of light, or even part

Telling me you’ve returned to me, my fingers crossed
