quid pro no

it’s not like
you weren’t there
behind the scenes
loving me
all along
without expectations.
a wholesome image
is blank in your mind
where together
experience filling your space
with time
between the drip drops
of our leaky faucet
which i still have not fixed.

i see the dreams
you have surrendered
to my essence
but why
can’t i
do that for you?
a simple note
left on a countertop
and your shoes
missing from our closet
where there’s
more space on the floor
then i ever knew we had
until you weren’t there…
