Where To Go

We walked together
Miles after miles;
That’s what I thought. 
The afternoon was as pale as
The drying leaf, about to fall off.
You said, the hand I held 
Was my imagination.

Spring had gone. 
Summer I knew only, 
When it burnt deep into my skin.
As I walk down into my memories,
Our words, with no ornaments, no clothes...
Bare bodies, naked, 
So different they look now
In my mirror -
Craggy, hard, harsh, like rock
Beneath the layer of green,  
With no tenderness.
Feelings once they carried 
Had the depth of an ocean,
Now stand shallow.

Years have gone by....
I am in the middle of a road,
Stranded --
Do not know where to go.
