Us

It is nights like this
that remind me of you.

Distant memories of us
creep slowly-
into the crevices of my
wandering mind,
stirring a strange warmth
within.
Strange but familiar,
comfortable-
like an old song on the radio,
or the well-worn jacket
on my back.

Us.

It sounds odd on my
tongue. A word-
said too many times
that has lost
its meaning.

I tell myself that one
cannot lose what
one never had.

But did you have to leave like that?
