It's been a while since someone's asked me if I'm okay.
But then, it's been a while since I've told you
And if someone reads this, they'll ask
but it's artificial
and I'll say "yes" even though we all know that's not
Because I wrote without realizing what I did, and
you're still here, but "I can't find you!"
I CAN'T FIND YOU!
"That's because you're alone," you say softly to me,
and I see you. But you're smiling as you say it and I know
we'll never drink together…
And I need more.
