unknown and invisible / by Ellen Sorensen

unknown and invisible 

sinking into the comfort of my own skin 

of my own secrets

i am me and she is my everything 


your heart and your soul

meshed with mine in the few 


when your orbit collided with

my year round the sun 


and they were the best days

drinking whiskey on smokey patios

and we dueled

in the sophisticated darkness 

of each other's minds


but the rain has come again 

the days of rescue are over

you are long gone

but every so often 

i find you buried in the pages of 

someone else's words
