Everything I have ever wanted

Standing in front of me

Close enough to touch

I reach out with my mind

My heart

Everything I want to be

Spread out before me

Tantalizing in its closeness

Its completeness

The answer to my prayers

My tears / my pain

 

As I reach out

I touch nothing but air

A mirage / a dream

Fleeting

Induced by desperation

Loneliness/ fear

I am standing alone in a desert

A vast empty place

 

Fate and hope are cruel

Adept at deceiving

Breaking

Can something that was never whole be broken?

 

I have been here before

Only then I believed

In apparitions

My biggest mistake

My frailty

 

I look up into the familiar sky

The wind brushes my face

I feel too much

I don’t want to feel /to know

The truth

Spelled out

Whispered in my ear

echoing

As the tears run unbidden

Down my face

To the dust below
