This poem’s been written for Poetry Potluck by Jingle Poetry. This Monday’s topic was ” Trips, Travel and Vacation.” I packed my bags one day To live in the places that Words were narrating.

Like a cigarette filter Longing to turn ash, She took the tear, Plunging from her eyelash, As a craving. As the last straw, So profoundly collapsing, Even the tear wouldn’t cry.
