About the Poem

This poem is dedicated to Stacey, who came into my life and taught me how to love, then left me so quickly on a spring day


27th floor
I'm sitting in the windowsill, your picture taped to the glass
Feel your arms around me but you're not here
I wear this shirt cause it has your scent
It's the closest I will ever be to you again

City sounds remind me of when we owned it all
We walked these streets and drank it all in
Never in my life had I felt so close to heaven
Never in my life have I felt so alone

There's a burning inside me that won't go away
It won't let me sleep
It won't let me think of anything else but you
Let it rain to wash me clean

Michael, I have written a somewhat similar poem about losing someone I loved. In fact, the words:"3AM" are also in this one. You are are very smart to express your somber feelings through an an outlet such as poetry.
