Alaska

1996




I felt you.

I said my "fond farewell" to him.
He would know
He had never had me.
And I felt a passion in me.

I waited for you...
Like I'd waited for you years and years
Every day anticipation
Every night disappointment
Again... again... again...

Only dreams reached out to me
Again...
Only distances, walls, pregnant silence...
No new beginning...
The same old hurtful reality
That tore my heart out...
No touch...
No tender courtship
Filled with sweet sadness...
No humility for our love.

Only a knock...
A whisper...
A dream.
