You're Not Here

The wings of dreams flutter
through my mind in the dark
night of your absence.

Words merge with thoughts to mould
disjointed images that flourish
flicker and fail to inflame.
Beached boats washed high
by the receding tide remind me
of your past presence.

Heaviness forces me deeper
into the empty bed, smoothing
the blanket covering
erasing my existence until
your vacancy and my emptiness
become one.

I dislike you for not being here
for not being my strut.
Are you unaware how fragile
I am, how lonely I am?
This weakness reviles me
yet I squander myself
to its attraction.

You’re not here
and I am left to wander
the caverns of my mind.

You're Not Here
