But Where Are You?

I zip up my dress
And put on my shoes
I wait and wait
But where are you?

I want to be mad
You’ve never stood me up; true
I’ve always been around
But where are you?

My phone rings
There’s been a wreck. Involving who?
Why’d they call me?
Where are you?

I survey the damage
A tear falls. Maybe two.
I see classmates all dressed up, crying
But where are you?

My hands stay empty
As my body moves
I twirl around and around
But where are you?

i love how the last stanza came first, because it really shows the emotion. it was the truest meaning in the poem, and you built up on it. great poem!
