The Ghost Girl

I hope you be the companion you expect other people to be towards you.

You never really saw her

Cause if you did

You would realize that her eyes were a little puffy

She wasn’t day dreaming

Her eyes were hazy not because her mind was in

Another world

That wasn’t calm you saw in her face

It was loneliness.

 

You never really saw her

Cause if you did

You would see that she had

A little bruise below her eyes

She must have wiped her tears too much.

It wasn’t her pink liner that gave that

Faint color

It was a wound.

 

You never really saw her

Cause if you did

You would make out the words

That she just said

That goodbye didn’t mean

See you later.

It actually meant

See you never.

 

You never really saw her

Because you were busy

Sweeping your eyes past her

While she looks at you with love

While she spoke to you with tenderness

 

Now you weep because she’s gone.

 

****

In response to the DAILY PROMPT.
