Glimpse of You

Art by: Ron Hicks

I steal glimpses of you

in crowds, in bed, and in my head.

Your perfume mysteriously mists the night air,

and my lungs fill up with you.


Though not real

I thought I saw your figure within the crowd.

Within a blink, it was but my eyes betraying me;

The hurt pangs the inner part of my heart.


I lay still in bed and thought I felt you once more at my side,

your loud absence leaves me restless and I resign

once more to memories,

a sleepless night.


Passing alongside the river,

walking with a stranger.

For a sliver, I thought… maybe…

no, for that would be a danger.


I thought I caught a glimpse of You.
