Still There

My arms fall

forever short,

reach exceeding my grasp.

My hands can’t find anything,

nothing seems to last.

I once held you

in the dark, but tonight

touch only air.

I think I’ve seen you

somewhere else,

just can’t remember


When I go out,

numbness creeps

into my limbs,

people try not to stare.

When I’m back

home again,

it’s like you’re

still there.
