Absent but Present

It seemed so effortless

Like the flip of a switch

We ended as quickly as we started

Eight years ruined by your ego

Now just an old friend

An old memory

Yet in my mind you linger

Do I inhabit yours too?

3,000 miles away

Yet so close to my broken heart

I search for someone else

To make me feel

Alive like I did with you

My sweet, gentle soul

Turned hard and cold

Senseless to other’s words

Scared of no one and nothing

Except you

Chills down my spine

As I scroll by your name

Do you get them too?

Your face appears in my dreams

Eyes cold and broken


Forever how you’ll be remembered

But sadly never forgotten
