For a Friend

Phantom Sleigh Bells

There you are and there you go
you didn’t and you couldn’t
and now you’ll never know.

It was you.
It was you.
Why else would I
have looked so longingly.

But never mind.
You only helped the sadness
speed a little faster
down the road toward me.

I’ve learned to live with demons
you could never know.
