Wilderness

I lost you somewhere along the way
(although for the longest time I said
that you were the one who lost me).

I lost you somewhere along the way
and I blame myself for not clinging
more closely — or was I too close?

Night and day I longed for you but
desire couldn’t bridge the distance;
without ties, I lost you along the way.

Perhaps if I had waited patiently —
or should I have sought & chased?
No matter. I lost you along the way.
