I see you

by Yasamin Riazi

 

I see you everywhere

I see you with the daisies

I see you while taking long road trips

I see you in the picnics beside the stream,

                                              our store-bought watermelons

                                                      plunged in the water beside us

but you’re not here anymore

and the sweetness

of watermelons

               leave a bitter taste in my mouth
