When You Leave Me

When you leave me

I miss the scent of you,

The feel of you,

The confidence you have in me.

 

I revert back

to being scared of the dark.

When you leave me

I leave the lights on.

Notes: I like this poem. It’s simple, yet effective, but I’m not 100% sure that it’s complete. (this will not come as a surprise to anyone who has read my last post–(un)finished business) I think that this is just the beginning. Suggestions?
