Do You Miss Him?

Do you miss him he said
His words hit me like lead
Do you miss him I thought
And in my thoughts I got lost.

My mind floated over mountains
Breezed over sun soaked valleys
Paid no mind to swooshing fountains
Crashed to a stop in a sun starved alley.

My eyes dived through the darkness
In the hope of finding light
For light had departed
And all it left was night.
