Image for the poem The Veil

The Veil

I wonder,    
do you feel me  
underneath your veil?
You're close enough to touch,  
but not enough to feel.  
   
This veil gives us a  
sense of comfort,    
but it is merely an illusion.  
For beneath the opacity    
we suffer from  
loneliness &    
confusion.  
   
As much as I love you,  
and want you to stay,  
inevitably, I feel you  
once more    
slipping away  
--  
into the veil's    
suffocating  
embrace.
