Unforgiving in Life

he was deaf
to her cries
as she stood
in the
windblown alley
calling out to him.
heavy snow
fell overnight –
muffled her
apologies.
in the morning
they discovered
her lifeless silhouette
under a soft, white blanket
on his doorstep.
he died
of heartache
the following night
for after she was gone
he realized
that he had
loved her…

loved her
more than life.
