Subtly he creeps in

A memory
The turn of his head
The tilt of his smile

I go from wondering
To dreaming about his scent
Lost in thoughts of him

A faded awareness
An old mental photograph
Forever ingrained

He’s left his marks
On my mind, over my body
His essence has altered mine

If I could unravel him…
But disconnecting never is easy
And my heart refuses to forget

I like it when you talk to me
