You came back into my life
For a solid second
To provide me with kisses on my forehead
To touch my skin
And feel my presence.
Then you vanished again into
Your life that you could not name
With a woman you did not love
And a path that was not understood.
For that split second for you reentering
May not have been long
May not have meant much to you
May have felt like a visit from the dead
May have been a dream, after all since then I’ve slept.
It gave me a little more meaning
It completed that section of uncertainty
But to see you leave again
After all the pain and hurt
After all the effort just to get me laid
But you didn’t get what you want.
It’s still a bit strange
Now you are gone.
