Absence.

I'm here,
But you aren't.
Not anymore.

Your scent
So distinctive,
Lingers on my skin.
And just for a moment,
A single, fleeting moment,
Your face flashes
Behind my eyelids
Smiling,
Laughing,
Brightening my world
Yet taunting me.

I wish you would leave me
Alone
So that I can try
To move on.
But, selfishly
I hope that you stay
With me.

Here, where I am.
But you aren't
Anymore.

The End
