Love Poem: Evidence

Evidence

One day I will wake
and understand why
you left yourself behind
when you moved away

I find evidence
that you have
been in every room

It has been 11 months
since you ran away
from yourself

Today
your book is still turned over
forever resting
on the first page
of the tenth chapter

I wonder if you have
 missed yourself yet

You left so many
of your things here

Like markers
staking a claim for you
in case you need evidence
to convince me 
that almost a year
hasn't passed

In case you decide
to suddenly show up
and pretend you never left

In case I will play along
when you pick up
 your book
and continue reading
where you left off

You are not really here...

So 
why
haven't
you
gone
yet?
