You Linger



~~~

Like a faint wisp of smoke

Or a letter unread

Like an itch I can’t get to

You linger in my head

~~~

Like a subtle May breeze

Or a good word kind said

Like a tattoo in ink

You linger in my head

~~~

Like the scent of a rose

Or of brave blood well shed

Like a haunting fairy tale

You linger in my head

~~~

Like an over-due task

Or a hunger unfed

Like a siren memory

You linger in my head

~~~

Like a favorite song

Or the feel of warmed bed

Like love left ungiven

You linger in my head

~~~
