lost in transition

she used to
sign
every note
with x’s and o’s
a lipstick kiss
in lieu
of her name
a hint of
her perfume
hovering
just above
so when i
awoke
she
had given me
a kiss

the last note
was still
signed with
exes and ohs
the lipstick
replaced
by a cursive
good bye
tear drops
on the page
instead
of perfume
just
the memory of
that last kiss
goodnight
that held
so much more
that was lost
in transition
