always been


to us.

Fading in

and out,


with what

you used to say

you wanted.



you don’t say

anything at all.

It’s like

you realized

that’s you’ve

married a phantom,

someone who’s

not here

for very long.


I guess,

I should have told you,

but I’m not sure

I knew,

back in the beginning,

that I would be

a memory

haunting you.


I’d like to tell you

how sorry I am,

but the universe

has no remorse.

I’d like to think

we did everything

we could

to chart

this course.


Good-bye isn’t easy.

Wish I had the words

to get you through.

This life isn’t fair,

but sometimes

we can see the truth.


I am
