yesterday’s shadow

melancholy stirs me,
and i’m suddenly reminded of a girl i used to know.

i loved her
once,
loved the person that she was
back then, anyway.

bright eyes,
free heart—
smile for me just one more time.

i don’t know how i got here without her,
but the absence
leaves me aching,
and all i can think of is
going back
to make everything feel all right again.
