about a ghost

poetry

A minute, was all you needed to text me where you went

An hour, that’s how long I cried and wished you were there when my bubble burst

A day, that’s how long I thought you’d be gone

A week, that’s how long it took to lose your image from the chat list on my phone

A month, hopefully that’s how long it’ll take me to stop thinking of you

A year, maybe by then you won’t be a name that I avoid saying

A decade, maybe by then I would be happier

A century, maybe by then my existence will be forgotten

A lifetime was how long I planned to stay with you

A moment was all that it took to fall for you

A goodbye was all you needed to say

A hello is not going to be enough for me to stay
