Poem: A Familiar Face

I saw who I thought was you
The smile  was yours and the lips
Oh god, those lips I’d never forget
It was your voice saying my name
Followed by saying sorry as you left

I saw who I thought was you
Then I saw through the girl there
Standing before me transparent
Like a piece of paper before the sun
Transparent and ready to blow away

I saw who I thought was you
The girl of a thousand masks 
Trying each one to see which one
Was the one I wanted you to be
When I was just looking for you 

I saw who I thought was you
Realizing I must have been mistaken
In thinking that I ever knew that girl
Who used to laugh with me out there
On city streets when we were just kids

I saw who I thought was you
And I still think of you
From time to time
Or at least the girl
Who I thought was you
