not here

on the last night
we would ever share together
you made me experience the missed steps
that our dance was fermenting
so I didn’t feel so bad I was exiting
no cold wind woke me up before then
and very likely would not ever again
yet I was glad to have found just such a friend
danger is not something I have feared ever since
while I hunted the battlefield
of twisted unavoidable serendipity
or fashionable poisoning synchronicity
I was invisible but helping everybody
it was positive that you somehow still saw me
surprised but expecting exactly what you would see
not knowing but correctly anticipating
the screaming and the dreams
how could I see how you would remember me
ran all over that scene
