stuck

I didn’t
realise
how much of you
was still in me;
This rising
engulfing
essence,
a fragrance so strong,
I didn’t know
I carried it;
How I bore
your shadow,
these faint grey
outlines
growing unobserved at
my fringes;
How I was
heedlessly consumed
by the ghost of your
memory,
that scattered
as it touched
everything;
How I remained
ignorant
till someone new
looked deep into my eyes
and asked

“who was he?”
