TUESDAY: After You Go

when you leave
it’s always the same
an empty room
an unmade bed
an open newspaper

I search for distraction
try to lose my self
in a book
escape the solitude

but I taste you
on my lips and my tongue
feel your breath
on my neck
inhale you
on my pillow
see you in faces I meet
hear your voice
in every word I write
