Still You, Statue

It's now 20 months
Since last I met you
You left knowing
You would not meet me after
You know, it's payback for all the times I walked out on
You

I live with that longing
Feel you in my own assorted ways
Still every day
As still as that last

It feels strange
That so many days elapse
Spell empty pages
Pay temptation, strangulation

Stranger still
That timepiece stopped
Pieces stay in places
No one else
But you ken how
To touch
