faded

October 14, 2012 at 11:31 pm (Ruminations.)

Tonight I ripped the sleeves off your favorite t-shirt

and – in it – here I lie,

thinking about your awkward laugh,

your blue, blue eyes, and

that make-believe world you made your own.

Worn.

Soft and exhausted, just like your smile,

it gently shifts across my skin, and

maybe its supposed to wrap around me like your arms

(holding onto me just a moment longer than needed)

but, instead I’m enveloped by the lack of you.

That’s nothing new,

since you were never really here anyways.

But I still don’t want to take you off.
