changed reminded 

i’ve been looking at that sky 

and listening to the wind 

feeling this dirt 

i’ve wandered on 

beneath my feet 

tasting it in my teeth 

as it all has changed 

within a day’s life 

yet i’m reminded 

of a different time 

where perhaps 

i once could say 

it felt like 

never before 

the pain was pure 

for what changed 

around me 

wasn’t sure

she caught me staring
and with a simple laugh
she asked me
are you going to tell me
that you’re lost in me
and with a smirk
i replied
no darling, i’m not
because when i look at you
it’s not about being lost
but a reflection
i’ve found in you
