Image for the poem phantom


I desire you know me deep down
but you probably do better than myself
a keen observer
so very patient
you let things unfold
you didn't rush it

you understood my nature
push, pull with people over and over
you took your time and wrote me love letters
I knew deep down but didn't open up
keeping you at arms length
with thoughts surely it's not for me

I'm glad you would take a step back
so often I use a razor when I'm frightened
my heart is grateful for your presence
I appreciate the space you gave me
while remaining vigilant

the evolution of a love so deep
I can't really fathom
my heart is opening
dearest phantom
