illusion [poetry]

standing across the path from you

finally

an elusive glance

like chasing a dream through dawn

i see you

completely

the truth in the darkness under your eyes

in your limp, dry lips that form my name

i know it hadn’t been forbidden then

when one of us had let go

and we had tried to walk the path alone

i know you think you did nothing wrong

but i see your lips

lips that kissed another girl’s lips

i see your eyes

eyes that searched for another girl’s eyes

eyes that now search for me

but i don’t want to taste her on you

i don’t want to see her in your eyes

who let go first

i don’t remember

but i think it was you

sweetie, it was you
