long gone

You’re long gone
I don’t know where you went
but you linger-
a distant shadow
of someone
who knew me better
than i know myself
The frozen girl-
in the coffin
- isn’t you
she doesn’t wink or smile
or wear clothes that were never in style
she doesn’t sing
or say anything
or tell a shamelessly lame joke
that makes me laugh so hard I choke
her eyes are empty
not the green pools
that suggested adventure
She is dead
and you’re alive
so she can’t be you
what they say isn’t true
