In Her Presence
Tom Viall

In the midst of the moment
I see you, distant and alone.
As I cling to your presence,
I wonder about your thoughts,
And I still hold on to my own.
I hold on to the thoughts
of what could be done but
everything still seems like
you, in the midst of the moment,
- distant;-
And even together we are
Just two persons alone.
My spirit is a symbiont,
not meant to dwell within itself.
