That, that is Not
24th August 2023

Looking for that, that was,
that is no more.
it is something,
just not that.

It is closeness …but not connection,
not the stark and unveiled interaction,
that should be after all this time.

Compromised …and compromising,
perhaps come close to describing what I am feeling,
…a loneliness,
…that is not.
