once or twice

once or twice I thought I saw you 
where shadow stretches long across the rock lawn 
but it was just the heat from the sun’s rays 
a mirage that evaporates into evening dust 

once or twice I thought I heard you 
drifting silently into a dream 
when I looked you were not there 
a faceless lesson I finally learned 

once or twice I thought I smelled 
the ambrosia left from a morsel of love 
that left me hungry after the meal digested 
thirst not quenched from bitter wine 

once or twice I thought I felt 
the softness of a lover’s hand 
soothing my brow but not my mind 
the coarseness of burlap against velvet skin 

once or twice I thought I tasted 
the sweetness of all it could have been 
imagination plays funny tricks 
on the senses of what won’t be
