As if
you could see right through me
to some other time
and place
you are away in your head
Index finger
steadily dragged
along the stretch of my back
and kisses placed
on my arm
are absent minded-almost-
the caresses
are your wake up call
Here –I am- Here

This embrace
Where you have found solace
And I have found love

As if you care
I don’t!
maybe I do…..
I don’t!
I do?
Do you?

As usual
I am busy having conversations in my head
With you…….imaginary you……
