I already know how it ends, I'm just here for the ride :)

All of my memories are gone.
The old stuffed cat that use to sit on your brown chair,
is now with my old clothes in the attic.
The old dream catcher and “little bird with river orchids”
picture are all rotting, like my life, in the garbage.
The wooden giraffes and glass eggs are at the old flea market.
The books you read and the poems I wrote,
are sitting in my yellow stained box under the sink.
The scrapbooks and pictures of us are with my matches,
and the flowers you grew
are placed
where you lie.

The author's comments:
When I wrote this poem, I had this image that it was a young couple who had married for several years. Then the wife dies. The man becomes very depressed and throws everything that bonded him with her. He's "Gone"
