Who We Never Were

Smoke through a keyhole
Wisps flow through
Elegantly bound
Paper cutouts
People we were supposed to be
Images projected on a screen
Futures plastered
Against white washed walls
Echoed air
Waving hello
Speaking goodbyes
Swimming through
Unspoked boundries
Loving the person
I left behind

I guess the fountain from which your thoughts flow come from many deep and varied springs....your soul, your thought, your experiences all coming out in this poetic verse...impressive..cannot put into words the rest of my impressions. Good stuff
