not enough

Like a withering second
               in a vast timeline
               you existed in my life,
a small portion that wasn’t enough,
             not enough to love you,
             not enough to melt in you,
not enough to paint my empty canvas
with the rainbow you were my love,
not enough to make you mine,
that was never enough
and it will never be.

Tonight I see you…

I see you —
walking towards me
in a gentle manner,
apart from all mortal beholders
going beyond all sights.
This rainy night sway
amidst all chilling drops
through the grassy meadow
of our last known —
an intense feeling,
caresses of your sensitive palms
and like a paint brush
your fingers mapping upon my skin.
You are reaching me – my sweet beloved
walking towards me
softly – gently…
