I am not where you seek for me
In shadows of your aging face
In those tripping beats of poesy
In hesitant hands gathering grace
I am not in your deepest thought
In the scars of your deepest sting
In unreflective love, overwrought
But promises may not mean a thing
I am not in the sun that shines
Or stars that glow in the eve
I am not there in your fondest lines
Softly said when you take your leave
I am just here, anywhere
If I could know that those I see
Are not looking blindly through
An illusion I know as me.

What is it we know as existence
Without emotions stripped off, bare
Cannot define in terms of substance
Only hope that you'll be there
Somewhere.

Your words have a sense of callous luster to them. Amongst the very few I have read from you, this is top-notch!

The mere existential facade in a seemingly unpopular and general love chemistry is so well disguised under the apparent fact!and that too so truly.

Kudos...Impressed with the write.
