Render me useless and
make me forget your smile
Let it be a part of our vanishing time and
a part of an unsolved puzzle where you & I
speak more but understand less

The air feels devoid of movement
as if it has zoned out looking at the sun
the abstraction becoming more and more complex
simplicity walking further and further away
is that moondust in your eyes?

Why do you confuse your way into my words
Grappling my sentences until they lose meaning
Fighting my full stops so I don’t end my thoughts
Enlivening in my readers their wordless emotions

You are nothing but an illusion of a memory
a muse that lives in another dimension
carrying not moondust but
the cosmos of my being in your eyes
and letting me reach closer to that feeling
just a little every time I write
