In my mind, I see your lips move

But I can’t hear your words

I look into your eyes

Searching for the man I once knew


The man whose words

Used to make me smile

The voice I loved to hear as I closed my eyes

Before I would allow myself to sleep


The man who spoke of our future and shared his past

Who shared his dreams and desires

Whose words caressed me

Long before his hands touched my skin


Where is the man…

Whose words spoke of promise and love

Who spoke poetry to my heart

His words beautiful to read


I search for the man I thought I once knew

I can’t hear his words

I can’t find his heart

I wonder…did he truly exist?
