A Kinda Ghost Story
 

 
I never touched your heart
as we moved in dual shadows.
I didn’t reach your mind
with my offhanded palaver.
~
You didn’t feel my emotion,
your shields were too well engaged.
~
Your thoughts, quite rightly cocooned,
were sealed from vile intrusion.
~
We didn’t reach out to touch
the hand in perilous proximity.
~
Neither sought to understand
why the other was there at all.
~
How can I ask, “Am I losing you”,
when you were never mine.
~~~
Not even for a hoped for moment.
My heart cries for you and for me.
