Hard to Detach

Wrapped her thoughts in vial,
stashed her unsaid words in some rustic valise,
he preserved her memories,
away from his heart,
to avoid the pain
and the nostalgic essence
which keep rising like some reek
from time to time
but despite the utmost care he took,
the rumination often seeped,
leaving behind her footsteps
for him to wipe and clean
