A Sudden Departure

A green plaid shirt
hung limp on the door.

Trousers lie crumpled
alone on the floor.

Bed is undressed
and the curtains are pulled.

Not too long ago
this house was full.

A sudden departure
that nobody saw

has left everybody’s
feelings raw.

Full of life
and mischief yesterday.

A sense of
emptiness and loss today.
