When You Are Gone


When you are gone
my heart is no longer here

It put up a sign proclaiming:
“Be Back In 5 Minutes”

But both of us knows full well
that’s a lie, a joke, a scandal

Because you’re not even
coming back in 10 minutes

But much longer than that:
an hour, a weekend, a week

For such myriad reasons of
errands, family, friends, business

But however long you go
my heart leaves to seek you out

And it’s not good at reading maps
so please please please hurry back.
