Once knew

Lying in this bed,
thinking of you,
I wonder if these memories
match the man I once knew.

Replaying your words,
dissecting your speech,
I hear harsh static
shout down what you preach.

Sitting in the dark,
wishing you were here,
I believe your ghost,
not you, easier to have near.

Yes, it’s easier to live with the lingering you,
than being with the distant man I once knew.
I once knew.

Driving in the car
listening to the radio,
I see close bodies
dance and sway slow.

Looking out the window,
imagining your smile,
I wonder if these grins
let your hurt hide awhile.

Siting in the dark,
wishing you were here,
I believe your ghost,
not you, easier to have near.

Yes, it’s easier to live with the lingering you,
than being with the distant man I once knew.

I once knew.
