poetry by j matthew waters

all along the fringes

nothing haunts me more
than your solitary smile
etched in memory
like a photo under glass

I try to reach out
but there’s nothing to touch
just a lingering aura
baked into my skin

wherever I may go
ambitiously I am watching
hopeful today is the day
you finally find yourself

october two thousand twenty
