The Gaps Of Sunlight

The gaps of sunlight

An image half complete

I try to put the puzzle together


Frayed edges and broken bones

The music in the background,

Your boyfriend loves that song but so do I


I don’t know me anymore


I used to love playing with your hair,

Then summer came and you cut it all off


I slept in your bed for days

Now I can’t recall the colour of your walls


Who am I?


A teenage boy lost in a daydream,

A long way from home


I dream of your eyes, golden honey

We’re lying on the grass


(I wrote you a poem when the cold came,

When I started seeing our ghosts

In places I passed by every day)


Now I’m alone

With the gaps of sunlight

Illuminating my darkest thoughts,

My deepest fear


I lost you on a cold winter night


But darling,

Were you mine in fall or summer or ever at all?
