April 16: Phantom (#NaPoWriMo #NaPoWriMo2020 #GloPoWriMo #Poetry)

 

PHANTOM

Returning, I sense

what you’ve written.

Your greatest work,

the secret in me,

growing, bursting,

its voice tender,

unearthly sweet,

forever melancholic.

Leaving, I know

what I’ve given.

My brightest flame,

the future for you,

seeking, trembling,

its desires fierce,

uniquely winged,

forever remembering.
