When I light
these cigarettes,
it's you,

and when I sing
songs off-key,
it's you,

but when I roll
over in the night to
find a breathing boy
instead of your
ghost,

it's not you.

It's you in
my morning coffee
and it's you in
my favourite jeans,
and it's you in the
blisters that form
on my fingers.

Only I have taken
you out of me and turned
you into things I love
and do and read because
I wanted to love him
true,

not you.
