I write you down on paper and in laptop screen
and every word I feel you watching me,
I am more naked than I’ve ever been
and more alone than I shall ever be.
My words describe not much: in every scene
the hollow stare your eyes were, nights when we
had just made love, and made me feel obscene.
I am more naked than I’ve ever been.
I write you down so you will leave my mind,
but every line is bringing you to me
in serendipity, in thoughts I find.
