Cologne by Eveline Hood

It’s getting late, the moon high in the sky

So am I but not so much that I don’t

I don’t

feel his weight on the bed, so familiar I time my breath

exhaling the soft sigh as he lies down behind me

smell that horrible cologne that I would endlessly tease him about

Not so much that I can pretend not to feel the light touch of his fingers

And then his lips on the nape of my neck, making me shiver

Through the window, the moon moves higher,

higher than I because

I roll to my right, hair spread like a silky blanket

on the pillow, becoming damp with my tears


My breath is stolen, frozen and flushed

He is here, and this is the last good day

The last time before the drugs that ate his body took hold of his mind.

The last.


This is how I remember him.

This Moment.

Belly to belly, after love, the windows open

The crickets, a saw house serenade



More. His eyes. Smile. Like this. Like now.

Belly to belly.

It can’t be real


I close my eyes and pray, afraid, to open them,

praying I’m wrong

Praying I’m right

I can’t feel him anymore, he’s gone from me again

but I still smell that godawful cologne that I teased him endlessly about

and my skin still shivers

I grieve again,
grateful and devastated
will it never end?
Please never stop.
