This Haunting

“You haunt me. Every single night
in my dreams, I see you.”

You haunt me. Every single night in my dreams, I see you. Beyond my reach. But I still see you. I see the smile that reaches your eyes. I see the stress, gone from your shoulders. And you look content. Happy. It’s such a strange sight, because I never saw it when you were with me.

If only I saw that side of you while I was awake.
