between strangers on the train

a passing glance
a sigh
Between us,
in reality mere dust, on the wind
Of your time.

I pretend more
Was shared
Between us,
Longing/imagining/inventing; words
spoken. dreams
shared. the laugh unique
For me.

Astonishment
Discovered together…
The havoc wreaked one upon the other…
Wondering at the end of a long
Sigh–was it worth it

You leave abruptly. No
Backwards glance, no
Long
Or short
Goodbye.
Perhaps your scent is left, your
Forever changing eyes.

Somehow nothing
Between us,
Just me.
And yet…
You inflict devastation,
Brand your name,
Leave you upon/in me
Anyway.
