Is She Gone?


The past 2 days have been completely Vanessaless

"Where did she go?"

"Which way did she went?"

All I can do is ponder her whereabouts

"What is she?

__a Monday-only girl?"

Tomorrow closes my workweek

And if her, I do not see

"Where the hell can she be?"

I comb the warehouse

Looking for her face

But all's I see

Is anybody but her

"I remember her hair

How it was tied up on top

How she didn't have much hair to tie up"

"I remember her complexion

Radiant with beauty

Without imperfection

Her Caucasian flesh"

But "I don't remember the color of her eyes"

For, I tried not to look

"Maybe I should have"

"Maybe it's too, late"

All the words we could have exchanged

I simply held back

To save myself

From being judged poorly

"Is it all over already?"

"What is she doing?

Avoiding me already?"

Our last "goodbye" is all we have

But it isn't "good"

__that we have said said "bye"

So I die just a little inside

Hold my head, ready to cry

Though I don't

And don't know why

"I can't imagine why I'm being teased

__with meeting somebody

____that I don't get to be with"

But I have to admit

__I'm not surprised

"Maybe that's why the tears that I am ready

__to cry out

____are not falling down"

But I'm still moving along

Pushing 40

Not knowing whether I die or not

The day before my 40th. birthday

Just like the B.L.O.O.D. that died

To make room for me

"Should I be alone for my final year?"

This is my final year

"If I survive

Would it even ever matter?

Without her?"
