Mirage

I watch you
Floating on air outside my window
Your spectral form glowing bright
White light dancing in time
To my wistful memories

Haunting perennial
Lingering at the periphery
Of each moment’s passing
Mind grows weary
Of your influence

As the heart wears down
Bit by bit
Like sand caught in desert wind
Till nothing more is left
But absence

Love and loss
So universal in its singularity
Beauty and nightmare intertwined
Yesterday was forever after
Today just a mirage
