That sliver of nothingness

O you, who are so distant,
yet so intimate in
your silent possession of me –
Am I loving the Unknown,
rather than you?

Is it the distance we keep
that breeds our intimacy?

O unknown one,
why does your voice
hold such richness for me –
a richness that brightens
my waning heart.

O breath of life,
am I searching for the stars
of a dream never to be?

Is there only this oblivion
outside of death?

Abstracting Abstraction

Lurch me from the shadows
that leach my life.

Take me, embrace me
in that sliver of nothingness
that, for a moment,
can feel so complete.
