phantom breath

Posted to Action Poetry

hissin in my ear
not really there
in the silence
of the pre dawn
as i roll over
in cotton comforter
with t shirt sheets
and feel around
realizin you aren't there
to keep me warm anymore
walkin the world
with intangible thoughts
i think i see you
in the distant horizon
of grey clouds and rain drizzle
i feel you still
near me as i brush my teeth
and reflect in the mirror
your essence fadin
with the years
i am routine
automated with the day
time clocked talk
i know what i miss
but isn't here anymore
