Proximity

what world did you come from—
in which lifetime did you live?

the air around me, and above me,
says we had walked the earth
together, barefoot,
dancing on the strings
of powers we couldn’t…                                                                                                                                                                                                                         or did we perceive?

what took us apart?
the space between when we stood
next to each other
is the distance between me
and the-other that i have hungered for

separated by time…

i could taste the ashes
of a palpable memory
imprinted on this soul,
that is in this body—
mine,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           and yours?

my mind has flown back
to the depths of time
i stand at the edge, watching:
nothing                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                wordless—
howling for my love

i am lost
in this time

have i found you?
