Poems

Degrees of separation

They choose to walk away from my life
And I learn that game of masquerade-
Pretend their absence doesn’t affect me.

How do I explain the insomnia
And your constant presence
In all my dreams?

I wonder if it is a spell you weave on me
I cannot feel separate from you
You are a parallel lifeline coursing through my veins.
Absence has nothing to do with it.
