via Daily Prompt: Vanish

Let your apparition vanish
from my plagued mind.
That’s all you ever were,
even when I could touch you.
You were just a figment,
a lighthouse on a distant shore.
And I, well I always belonged at sea.
While the lighthouse and ship
would not exist without the other
and call to each other,
the choppy waves sing a song,
always lulling me back
into open water.
