The forgotten route

You turned up at the forgotten route
When wishes were packing up, tired
The haze of everything I’ve ran away from
Is suddenly at my door-step, ringing of you

Hello Phantom, don’t come in yet
Distances draw their best bets around me
Our boundaries know their wise lore
From stories bled by earlier angels

I trace your world from places I won’t belong
Our duality rests on the songbird’s mystery
Our lives will never be quite the same again
From our moments apart, though we never are together

Think of me, Phantom, when your mornings rise
Know that we are one, when the world around fades
You walk with your loved ones, the life that you know
While I walk alone beside you, your thoughts all mine…

    This one is a mind bender, you walk alone yet you are beside him. His thoughts are yours so it is like you are the same person which explains the alone reference. Well done!

    So very interesting your style and lovely images. Glad I am seeing this one last poem for the night. I have been here a long time and it's funny, I was wanting to see your poetry before going off, and there was a comment from you just a short while ago. You said you didn't like chocolate. Have you ever had the hot chocolate they drink in Spain? I could not believe how thick it was.
