Just rags eaten by moths,
dust on old books,
dried petals without scent,
that is all that remains
from a thwarted love affair,
a secret buried in old linen
together with lavender sachets.
Memories in a house no one visits,
a garden left untended,
tears turned into nothingness,
while the pale sun of Winter
warms the porch that waits for no one.

This is a gorgeous piece, girl. Incredible imagery. Haven't I read this before?
The final line is a fantastic summation with great alliteration. I love the allusion to 'vacancy'; the empty house and overgrown garden, the unquenchable emptiness.
