Adjusting My Make Up

My room after you left it keeps getting muddied white
as if the past is a faraway fog
The strength I can’t prove a second time keeps growing hazy
If it rains on our parting this morning, fine

I knew loneliness, meeting you
But I lost you, and now I’m truly alone for the first time


A fragrant loquat – our garden has been rotting away wounded for a long time now
So many times we’ve said too many goodbyes

Please come home just once more
Because I won’t put your love to waste that time, really


I knew loneliness, meeting you
And I became aware that I’ve been losing you too all throughout this long time
When words fluttered around and withered in midair
I finally realized it
That I am truly alone
