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?
