there is a word that does not exist yet
which describes the feeling between us;
you are no longer mine,
but the seconds of my day belong to you.
you exist somewhere between the frames of
reality and the spaces within dreams.
when people ask about you,
this is what I will not tell them:
you are both the dream I lost,
and the journey I am taking to find it.
