Not There











I called,
but you were never there,
no one ever could say where,
no message
would be waiting
when I returned.
I looked into the mirror,
remembering I once
had seen you
there, but I never learned.
You beckoned in a dream
from another time.
Following, I would
finally make you mine.
And when I despaired,
you filled my midnight eye,
asking if still
I was satisfied.
