and our shadows greeted
exchanging pleasantries that would never be heard.
then our bodies mingled in that crowd
that made us non- existent to each other
then our hands clasped in that
prayer said as one congregation.
then we sent smiles
but they were returned with frowns.
then you shed a tear
and it rained all summer.
then our hearts left our being
but were sent back by harsh words
you and me
will never be…………
just our shadows that will forever meet.
