i am unexpectedly

i am unexpectedly
and satisfyingly
left behind,
the memory
of me has walked out
the door, recaptured
in glittering details
even in
sequins, perhaps.
i am hiding in
between the
minutes, where
no one has yet

    Loved how the poem captures “the world has lost me” kind of feeling. Loved that last line! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    How interesting this one is. It is as if you have stepped outside yourself, become the eye of the camera or the poet, just roving and omniscient; invisible, immobile, all-seeing, all-feeling, wonderfully out of step, and when you are ready, when you have gathered the images and experiences you need for that moment, you are ready to be
    /recaptured/in glittering detail/. Only you would /hide between/the minutes,where/no one has realized/ I agree with the first commentor, that is a unique and lovely notion and line.
