anti valentine poem – Man

you are here yet not here
the past haunts you
we are both of your past
one dead one alive

drawn by words and words
that fall into broken
poems the second you
retreat from my life

a gentle soul trapped
in another time I
see you fading from
my line of fire

perhaps you should 
run from me, this love
you talk about in slurred
tones seems not worth

fighting for, my older
heart has been changed
and no longer holds
any man near or dear
