You take his hand
but it doesn’t tighten
around your fingers
like mine did.
He laughs
when you laugh,
but it is not as full
as mine was.
You look him in the eyes
but his are not like the ocean
like mine were.
You hold him tight
but he never lingers,
not wanting to let you go,
like I did.
You will constantly
be looking for me,
in him,
but you will never
find me.
And when that day comes
when it finally hits you,
that it was me
all along,
you will reach for your phone
and call me.
And it will ring.
And it will ring.
And it will ring,
And it will ring.
