Artwork by Linda Bickston at

Eyes filled with sadness, a bottle of wine and then endless wondering of your why.
Intensity, something less than the divine, yet for a moment you tasted the truth of the lie.
Regret, passion, and shame; don’t forget, somehow, you knew her name.
Loneliness, depravity  and pain, for you it was all the same.
Despite what you might think, this was something I never do.
In the end , this was less about me and more about you.
Don’t pretend you never knew…
