In Shadows

I found you today,

it had been so long since I had,

your eyes,

in a distance I closed my own,


rushed to keep my lids comfortably tight

so I could feel the shadows passing by,

a glimpse of light,

a soft memory,



I could feel my eyes wanting to focus

on an overhead fan in my room,

but mine was not to be with this world,

I wanted to see you,

miles away yet always near my heart,

only imagining perhaps, this chilly afternoon,

a seat on the deck, dear boy

near so soon he’s learning the melody of bird-song

you taught me so well.


I want to speak yet know I cannot,

only may I dream,

a soft light of smile crosses my eye

deep inside the shadows of my mind,

I do still yearn

to feel your heartbeat next to my own,

those rare moments,

those forbidden moments,

wanton of the passion

we did,

do surrender our world.
