My Love is a Dead Existentialist

a clear memory when I read the words he said –

My existence was where no voice,

no possible movement, could free me

from the agony and darkness.

a feeling of blustering recognition

that I had found love

I have looked for love on the websites

faces passing through

a tunnel of dark light

my dead existentialist

seemed to know of my love

like it was a Godot of his mind.
