"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds ways to kneel and kiss the ground." - Rumi

Standing right infront
of you, blind to your
eyes. Can you see
me? Can you


me? I smile, arms wide,
in a friendly gesture.
Your eyes are wide,
blank, expressionless.


thought you knew me,
but your gaze pierces
through my being like
an undulating apparition.


really here? Are you
really there? As you
walked right through me,
I knew you never knew.

Well, I'm cursed to love a wilting flower that is to never bloom. This is what she calls being "friends."
