∙϶∙ looking at you through the past ∙ϵ∙

i should have seen it

coming since i was looking

at you through the past

ϵ

or was i looking

past you?  anticipating

seeing through your lies

ϵ

or at least hoping

but it was never easy

to tell if  you were

ϵ

real or an object

of  my obsession…     born of

my desperation

ϵ

and loneliness…    God,

i want you to see me…    tell

me the truth for once

ϵ

you said it was the

moon that betrayed me and the

stars that were lying

ϵ

bubbles in my glass

of  your heady wine make me

wonder if  you’re real

ϵ

but i learned the hard

truth of  you…    the stars don’t lie

the way that you do

ϵ

i don’t see the real

you     …i don’t really see you…

you never saw me

i’m looking at you

originally posted 29 March 2010

ϵ

i’m looking at you

trying to see inside your soul

wondering…..

do i really see you?

do i see the real you?

or are you just a figment of my imagination?

the ethereal object of my obsession?

made from the heat of my desire?

born in the fires of my passion?

living only in my longing     …..yearning     …..needing so desperately

for someone to hold me     .….desire me     ..…love me

are you even here?
