Things are not always what they seem.
Your face in the shadows, once in the moonlight, now gone.
Sometimes I still see you there when you want to be.
What is this mess we've made?
It is like a pink rubber ball bouncing rapidly down a steep, dark slope.
Fresh at once then losing speed until it rolls no more.
You have been my heaven and my in-between.
But as you fade away I know this will not be
everything I thought it could.
Still I reach for you in the night.
Someday I hope you may return to me
and be a warm welcome against my cold skin.
My soul awaits yours and I will try to live fully.
Surely it cannot be much longer
until we finally get it right.
