Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939, translated from French by Lewis Galantière


You are here
Yet you aren't
You move as if you feel it too
Thoughts drifting
Mind wandering
Eyes distant
Head turned
But still listening
Your lips saying something
But I cannot hear
I'm leaving just as fast as you are
Please don't go

I like it; cool how it ends in a paradox. :)
