What chapter are we at?

Sometimes I am numb,
Sometimes I am touched,
Sometimes I feel dead,
Sometimes I see hope.
Are you still here with me
in my youth, my breath, my silence, 
and those of our stubborn faith?

Sometimes I wonder what they see when
again probing and staring into my eyes?
For they are not the same anymore,
They are now hiding a muted secret:
The reminiscence of your last gaze.

Is this love?
But my existence is merely a beautiful mistake,
I thought I was only a passerby, not a settler...

  3. learning to feel alone, but accepting the truth I am not alone… it is in my breath, it is in my presence! How we feel is not always reflective of the truth…Your essence, Your passion, Your dance, Your poetry and the eyes that are dared to be looked into… The phases, the plans, and the patterns…receiving the answer and still finding a reason to ask the same question.
