The Neighbour

walking down the street that we shared
memories flood my mind as i look at the scenery
as though it was being played right now, right in front of me
and when i turn to my side, laughing at something you said
i stopped short, for there was no longer anyone there

the times that we had never really left me
even now as i stumble through the days you were still everywhere
every little habitual movements you did, caught my eyes and i’d smile
seasons changed and we had been the same, as though we were a constant in the place
i stopped short, for you were no longer there

those lips, the words you said to me
unable to forget, even when you left me, questions in my mind
regrets lingered in my dreams, turning to nightmares when i see your back
again, and again the times together, the future we sought to share
i stopped short, for you are no longer here
