It still Lingers


It still lingers vividly strong 
The wind and tide disperse it not -
Toxic but sweet; yielding a fragrant scent
Toxic because I cannot have it at all.
I wish it gone like my long lost past
Yesterday dies as midnight arise
But this remains lingering strong
Weakening my heart as each day death draws both nigh.

K.Oni
