What they said

I thought it simple metaphor,
the way everyone said it
too matter-of-factly and sure,
another overused cliche
so oft selected and repeated
it stuck like a sunny day:
“You find yourself in them,
all former lifeblood gone,
replaced truly root and stem
by their softness come along.”
And under that mask I fade,
with thoughts of you spread
to everything, every shade
I might chance in passing;
like a sickness of the head
all I ever hear is your laughing.
