A Word Dangles

A word dangles above me
like a vague notion of things unseen
and i bat at it
like a cat playing
but are You so different from me?

what sort of thing has made this word
so keeping my attention?
i glace away and back again
there it is, unmoving question...

can we play games like children
again just You and i?
i am alone in all my memories
just a flicker (a ghost) of candlelight

and still You call with unanswred questions:
am i waitng for You?
What can be undone in this
it's just You me You?
