who is the girl in this picture,
found folded in the back
of an old book.

she is wearing my dress,
the one that was
my favorite
when i was falling in love.

why does she hide
at the back of the page?

i know the one who drew this picture.
what did he see?

. who is this girl?
the one who wears my dress?
her features are too soft
and her smile is blurred
at the edges
.

why don't i know this girl,
the one who is wearing my clothes?
why does she hide in the background
of my mind?

she is no relation to the woman
who greets me in the mirror
each morning,
but she plays in the back of my mind
looking for an opening
to come off the page.
