Ghost

They sat me down
And asked me to
Sum you up in just
A few simple words.

How could I possibly
Define your worth in
The length of a breath?
So I spouted sentences

Until there was nothing
Left, on their clipboard
They wrote down just
One clear phrase,

Somehow they weaved
The maze of my mind
And found you wrapped
In silken sheets and

Unwound our love, the
Days and weeks, and
Found their missing case
Was not what they assumed.

Why can’t they see you,
When I still do?
