Little Black Dress

Image
The curve of your back
the twist of your hair
that intent blue-eyed stare
the little black dress
and leather sandals
your flat silhouette
and my love handles
I'm so obsessed with 
your little black dress
and the way it hugs your hips
and the gloss you put on your lips
then back in your bag
beside a trendy fashion mag
I'm so obsessed with
your little black dress
I can anticipate the sound
when it shimmies from you
and hits the ground.

I miss you so much 
I keep reaching for your hand to touch,
Hundreds came to pour out their love
and embrace who's left with their tightest hug,
Harder and harder they squeeze 
trying to hold on to dear Denise
whose heart they say was the kindest
and whose smile seemed to remind us
how much we were loved and appreciated
now she is gone and we're devastated,
Her kindest heart was dealt the cruelest hand
and for that I can't understand why
as I cry and cry until the well runs dry
and fills up again to pour down like rain
on an empty street where I feel left alone
until I hear her laugh when I'm called back home.
