Presently Absent

She forgets she is forgotten.

She seeks the invisible,

A reflection concealed by his words. 

She yearns to be wanted.

She reaches for the departed,

A spirit who kissed her good-bye.

She wishes to be hopeful. 

Her breath chases the dandelion,

A childish desire in a mournful heart.
