portrait

a portrait of you
hangs on a wall
in the back
of my mind

I see it sometimes
when I think I’m
looking for something
else, when really,
it turns out, I was
looking for something
to gaze at,

so, I stop for a
few moments
and stare

and what that
amounts to is the
fact that I wish I
didn’t have to go to
all this trouble
just to look into
your eyes or see
the wonderful
turn of your lips
