unrequited love

once i fell in love
with a mirage
a reflection
so beautiful
she held me in awe

you see,
life moves on
and she is not a statue
or a painting
to be admired

she is a woman,
a person.
and her neck is as graceful as an alabaster cliff
and her hair falls in spinning rivulets
and she moves like a mixture of summer and laughter
and i’m sure there are angels that follow her everywhere she goes

so i can’t look at her
she’s too miraculous
too amazing

and i’m not sure it’s really love
but it’s something like it

never again

i’ll never see her again
i wouldn’t know if it if i did
my eyes are so cloudy now
and my soul is so lost

like a single rain-drop in the desert

only hoping to be
what she could have wanted
or what could have been worthy

life goes on

somehow we continue
with or without our love

stronger for the experience
more experienced for the love
and alive

lost love

i thought you were gone
but you never really left
we just grew distant
and lost track of each other

then one day
when i touched the mirror
you were there
echoing in the rivulets of light

maybe our souls were just too entwined
so that we had to find our own peace
and we let go
as all lovers must

i remember how you used to move through the threads of life
and how it all sparkled in the soul
so magnificent
so easy for you
and so much insanity for me

your ease of life
still comforts me
all these years later

life goes on

i miss you

i was just thinking about you
and wondering if you were thinking about me
because it’s been a while since i’ve heard your sweet voice
and felt the tingle that you make me feel

and it’s almost time
for us to talk
and i’m a little excited

and then i call you
and your name pops up
before i dial
because you called me
just a few seconds earlier

i just love it
when that happens
