№ 74: Lost Love


when we kiss

in the shadows,
i always wonder why:
why you hide
in plain sight,
why you hide
from me

we’ve done this dance
already, too many times to count,
tiptoed around
an inconvenient fact,
the one you wish
you could un-know

but that’s not how
this works, my dear,
— i’ve asked —
you can’t just run away
— i’ve asked —

distance doesn’t seem to matter;
the heart knows what it wants

i wait for you to understand…
to hear me, see me,
look me in the eyes

and tell me,

               this can never be
