Silhouettes

Stored away

In these familiar catacombs

I go back, 

The pages withering 

The dim light flickering

I can barely trace the outline 

Your silhouette in the dark

Its absence sparked 

Deepening space

An unforgettable face

Hidden between

The margins 

Separating on this shore 

Soundless waves  

Crashing–

Enveloping– 

Igniting–

What no words can describe 

And millions of decaying books–

Beautiful futility

Permanent ink

Ghosts I begin to love
