lost

a smudge of your fingerprint
smeared on this side of my window
my hand hovers over it
careful, fearful, wanting more

dust settles on a photograph of me
you've let it lie so long on your shelf
it was all yours, that day we played
just us, all by ourselves

a drop of a water trickles down
trailing memories, condensed from mists of pasts
do you ever wake like I do
only to find that I am lost
