it behooves me
to offer explanation of why
i carved your name
into my soul
i had a visitation
early one Monday afternoon
‘round twelve thirty
right after the sun began to move
i felt your breath
on the back of my neck
and the weight of your arms
as they encircled me
and i inhaled your scent
and got dizzy with bliss
and right before i tasted
your kiss
you were gone
i chased the ghost of you
lover unknown
tracing the imprint
you left
on my bones
