Left Behind

 
LEFT BEHIND

Stripped.
Bare.
Nothing left
of the original.
Sparkling blue eyes,
gone.
Dimpled smile,
gone.
Silky strands
of browns and blondes,
also gone.
If you look closer,
however,
you will see
the remnants of
what can never be taken.
You will see through
the non-blue eyes
and past the smile that’s
not the same,
and you will find
what’s left behind:
the soul of the one
who has gone
nowhere.
