All Along

I think of how
you miss her,
this girl who haunts
your waking,
lies near you
in sleeping,
this girl who only
the clouds recognize.

You scream out
in your tortured dreams
for her to rescue
what’s left of your heart,
what’s left of a body
that has lived too long
without her,

yet she vanishes
like faded photos
and missing socks,
her visage
a mere shadow
in your memory.

You’ve tucked her in,
made her watch
while she disappeared,
yet you still scream out
into the world that

you miss her.

Why can’t you see
she’s been here
all along?
