Away

I don’t like it when you’re away.

And I don’t just mean

when you’re far from the reach

of my arms.

I don’t like it when the look

in your eyes

is glazed over, blank

staring off into spaces I

can never penetrate.

I don’t like it when I hold

your hand and feel

nothing but your pulse

alerting me to the fact that

yes, you’re there. And alive.

But not really.

Leave your thoughts here!
