half life2

I have never known

A joy like that which ignites

Behind a sealed door


Though you wear many veils

I have seen your likeness

A thousand times


How I wish that my life

Were a reflection

Of the unseen

For I will never mean

Half as much as you

Have meant to me


Face to face with you

All I see is my absence

My lips are a tourniquet

Behind which all feelings

Are remorsefully locked

I will not speak to you

Lest you undue

The fantasy I have

So cautiously wrought
