the unsettled dust

why do you
leave?

this vacancy
like something
familiar
was removed
and nothingness
takes its place
for a while,

the unsettled
dust
streams through the
empty window
how it swirls
and scatters
as I breathe,

I can hear
you go further
away
retract into
the world from where
you came
never once looking back
for me,

but I look
ever so often
for that missing
piece,

why do you
leave?
I ask of every
little thing
you left behind,
even of my heart
that refuses
to believe.
