I tried to hide you Underneath the photos Where the sun hides too
I tried to hide you In between pages of books that I have been meaning to read
I tried to hide you In between the ticks and the tocks In between the shadows and the light In between what I wanted and what I never had
But here you are You seem to seep through the leaks of my very soul Suddenly you are in the calluses of my palms In the sweat drops on my forehead In the pieces of sand on my eyes like you never even left
You have me, still. Even when I cannot say the same for you.
It’s still you I think about even when I’m with someone else
