Default Happy Alone


head down
uncombed dirty blond
crying here again

he is everywhere in the house
and this closet only
holds no memory

after years of happy alone
his smile
and then knowing

there was just alone

his touch
discovered the empty

now his face
all over the walls
of the inner

where no one goes
but you for confession
that before he was

you were not
happy
alone

Felt that in the core of my being.
