Peering through an opaque glass
Your image flickers in the light
The blurry contour of your body
Stands like shadow….haunting me.

Extending my hands, I tried to reach you
Touch your shadow, try to feel you
But as I come close to holding you
Out you vanished, left me in awe.

Are you there or you’re just pigment
My rich imagination has created
Or are you a
dream, or just a vision
Borne out of
loneliness and misery.
