White flowers by acrylic (Rini Barman)

Not that you are gone
But that you are going
And not that you are far
From going into
that which you keep going out
and about.

But that your eyes twitch
Like a white flower bud
And that trembling
Thud, thud, thud.

Not that I see you
But that I see you
And that I see you
