Imaginary Friend

Move into the light

and let me see you


past the flowerbeds and over the sidewalk.


No need to try to hide

from me;

I count the moments we

have left

as sunlight gathers on the edge of the step;

I see my reflection in the pool of water you leave behind.


Slanted and obtuse, I peruse the scenery for anything tangible you’ve left


But, all is quiet again, and you are nowhere to be found.


Once more, you’ve eluded me.


And I still can’t prove you are real.
