My love

The mystery of you

Defeats me

I can never really see

Into your endless

Swirling depths

I swim in your dreams

In eerie silence

I have drunk of sorrow

Of tears

And futility

But cannot quench

My thirsty soul

I used to know

Each tiny crease

On your beloved face

But now

I find myself adrift


In the mirror’s frame


Of the void

In the very air

You breathe

But if you remember

My love

You will awake

Once more

With me

And we shall have
