no longer here

she was here,
outside your gate
eyes set on your pretty garden
ooh’s and aah’s leaving her lips

she was about
to step through the gate to feel
soft grass beneath her feet
when she caught sight of
butterflies and blackbirds dancing
beautifully by the fountain

how would I ever
and why would he need

and so that’s why
she was no longer
