The shadow of your absence
You turned your back on me and left me
but still left the most important part behind,
the shadow of your absence being more alive than any ghost,
as if you stayed behind the more for leaving me.
Your presence is a haunting trauma
and the more so for your absence,
as if you could never leave me
but to prove the more your indispensibility,
your hidden eyes and your expressive back
just proving too unbearably the unacceptability.
I know, I am not sober, mad with grief
and melting in the sorrow of your absence,
while my only hope
is after all the possibility of your return.
