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.
