I saw you in my mind one day.
Walking in like a mystery,
Until I reached out and tried to hold you close.
And then I felt the warmth of your pain,
The depth of your anguish,
The sibilance of your thoughts,
And held you close'to me, my mind, my self.
You wandered, sullen at times,
Cheerful at others
And left me to fathom the secrets of your smiles.
The words were spilling back to me
Returning from their anguished abyss
To cover the blank spaces;
To shed themselves through my oblivion,
Now I live again
Through dark letters,
And I write'
As though there is no yesterday again.
