When You Are Not Here

When you are not here
I am more aware

of the loitering past
blind-siding me to the impending future

of the stale history of the familiar
masking the imperative for renewal

of a long-forgotten wildness
that almost apprehended me

of the swift talons that bring
the emptiness of selfish pursuits

of an ancient battle
I have forgotten how to fight

of the unanchored intents
you have rescued me from.
