the blank page
stares at me
while i watch
the seconds going by

you say
i’m not over it
they say
i’m not over it
but i know

and all your worries

watching the sunrise
sitting cross-legged
and smiling

watching the sunset
with a lump in the throat
that is hard to ignore

all the images
that run through my head

let me hug you
before we enter the car

and i’d rather keep your smell
and the touch of your skin

i could drive forever
with your hand around my neck
we stop at a red light
and i stare straight ahead
knowing that a turn of my head
would melt away any resolve i still have
