Emily Poem - Poem by David McLansky

Sad am I
That we two
Only shared the knowledge
Of our separate fates

The dreamed life together
Screams in pain
As you walk away
A silent stranger
On the street again

We two
Who
With such
A mighty effort
Undressed our souls
Before one another

And now
A sudden flash
You a sudden stranger
And guard your thighs
When next we meet

I'll only hear the laughter years after
Only cry your leaving this evening
Empty void of miracles
between
What has been
and
What might have been
