The voices inside my head

You used to be there

egging me on when I lacked courage

or singing to me when I was lonely.

My + 1 at parties

you never stood me up

or guilt tripped me into concession.


And when I left YOU for my world

you never complained.

Your jealousy for taxes, marriage, and a house never

showed through, though I wouldn’t have minded.


And now I wonder where you went,

and why it’s so quiet in my head.
