I still feel you so close to me,
Your touch brings goosebumps to my arms.
I remember only the good of how things were long ago,
But your face is transparent as I attempt to look into your eyes.
A hollow emptiness stares back at me and my heart falters,
It is not you that holds me tight
But the ghost of you from my past.
The you I remember and loved,
The you who never loved me.
I watch with a tragic sense of loss
As your ghost fades away.
I realize now,
That you were never really there.
