a great and long while

amidst the absence
of a most
precious presence
one is left alone
with themselves
a strange and untrustworthy
character
often distracted
by the other
now awkward
as though
with a friend
you have not spent
time with
for a great and long while
so all the talk is small
while you wait and hope
for the return
of your comfortable
of your brown hair
of your hazel-green eyes
that i might forget me again
and live with you –
present.
