"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

hear

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

I

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

Am

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."
