By
she left behind
a void and
a stain and
a traditional note,
in spider-scrawl
with loops and angles
that looked crabby and unlike her;
the void can be filled
the stain will be cleaned
and the note should be burned,
but everyone says it mentions me
and
i can’t wait to read it;
i’m sure she keeps a copy with her.

Enriching but intruiging -- a wholesome piece of work with just the right amount of mystery to make it beautiful!

I really liked this poem, though you should think about breaking your lines differently (as in, not after every 'and', as it creates a choppy, heavy sort of feel).
