see/want/have

I see your
light
I love you/I don’t know you,
I am
enthralled by the idea
of you, by the
essence of who I think
you are
I see you because
I am looking at you, thinking,
believing
what might be, what
can be, what will happen
when you look back
at me
I feel you thinking; wispy and
slight
the weight of a dream, sitting
on shoulders, on empty desks
where emotions
do their business…
day after day
I want you like I want air
water land…to walk toward
an ending imagined
and hoped for
I love you/I don’t know you
yet you are something
shining within me, a glow
that shadows my
dreams, a vague sparkle
like firefly’s
circling in the deep well
I call
me…and
in that darkness;
the corners, lost
edges
they wait for
your
light…so
I can see myself
clearly
again.
