      Last Day of January
      by David Roth
      © 31st January, 2007

      It’s the last day of January
      on the dark side of the moon,
      while visions of might have beens
      float on spectral memories.

      Gently rubbing the empty place
      on the far side of the bed,
      cold, empty, forlorn, withdrawn,
      falling into dark despair.

      Reaching out into the night
      with the naive hope
      that this time the loneliness will dissolve
      beneath the warmth of her touch,

      drawing back at the knowledge
      that nothing there remains
      but the last day of January
      on the dark side of the moon.
