She will be back

Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 517 https://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides
Every Wednesday, Robert Lee Brewer shares a prompt and an example poem to get things started on the Poetic Asides blog. This week, write a haunted poem.

When I look in the mirror 
I see nothing. 
I wander the halls of my home 
waiting for her to come back. 
She left abruptly 
without any notice. 
She has not come back yet 
and does not try to reach me. 
I will wait for her 
for I know someday she will look for me. 
The rooms are quiet 
yet her belongings are still here. 
Soon, I know, she will come. 
Soon, I know, we will be together again.
