I question if absent mindedness

Has been that lingering shadow

Nefariously following me around

Like some stalker for broken hearts

That missed the boat for recovering

Since they’ve drifted from normalcy

Remaining on the peripheral of life

Caught between darkest and light     

Draining my energy to be- myself

Diverting my thoughts from now’s         

Nothing seems to be where I left it

I find things where I least expect          

My grief tells me I misplaced you

In that way, I’ve least… expected to
