buried

Haunted by that smile, I stumble at the doorway of sleep.
Am I alone?
I feel her warmth in the pit of my stomach.
Sometimes you must chase the ghosts away
by visiting the grave.
Sometimes what’s been buried cannot die.
She keeps me here
half awake and waiting,
half alive and wanting.
Little is more morbid than the unrequited.
