ash (where have you gone?)

is there a version of you that would want to come back?

you've been far, so it may not be appealing.

is there a version of you that would want to come back?

i know you're happy now, but i am not healing.

i've though about you every night for a year.

about the way you left,

and where you are buried.

i've thought about our friendship,

our dreams, and our paintings,

and all this weight i have carried.

if there was a version of you that would want to come back,

let me know because my number is the same.

i'll pick you up, you know, wherever you are

and we'll pick up where we left off in may.
