Stunned

You look stunningly well,
really well. He said
and the saga continued.

The old message is replayed
and the hint of history
appears.

Wisened hearts
momentarily
embrace
and spring apart
like
caught lovers
until we’re just here
again.

Words hide amongst words
masquerading as
idle chatter
but with familiar
undertones.

Flattery leads
to Nowhere,
a destination
from before.

He delicately imprinted
his lips onto my
hand –
an indelible intimacy.

And ashamedly,
I received
and
was affected.

You look stunningly well,
really well. He said.
And it fell into
space.
