Kissing his Shadow

Have you ever kissed a shadow

The shadow of the one you love

The one you love but have never met

Never heard, never held, never felt.

 

Head is buried in palms

Mind in deep contemplation

Imagination swaying in the air

I can see him, I can hold him, I can feel him.

 

Caressing his shadow

Feeling the great works of an artist

Fingers appreciating a craftsman’s work

Feeling each bit of his curves.

 

A Feeling I cannot explain

Happens in a world deeper than I know

Only with eyes closed

Not a dream though

 

I tremble yet I smile

I sing yet I drop a tear

What could this be?

Someone tell me…

Have you ever?
