I do not exist ...

I do not exist ...

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental. Written in fragments.

"
I left you alone,
last night.
I wander, lost.

I do not exist,
except in the
whites of your eyes,
sleeping quietly.

I do not exist,
except in the
midst of your dreams,
flitting out infrequently.

I do not exist,
except in the
softness of your breath,
my needs transparent.

I do not exist,
except in whispers
in the wind,
secretly spoken.

I do not exist elsewhere,
still, I wander, lost.
I left you alone,
last night...

I've read this three times and each im carried away in my longing thoughts and needing moments. I look back and realize that I have not left a review. I draw my attention back to how intensely somber each stroke of your words feel within me. I brush my hair back and focus my breathing again...wipe away that sneaky tear welling in the corner of my eye. All I can muster is the stillness...the knowing...

I like how the beginning and end was worded the same, like a snake biting its tail. Good use of commas. It made the reader slow down and enjoy the pauses. I liked it. CD

I saw a bond between mother and child, a love often not reciprocated but appreciated. Don’t know why but each read was the same.

Welcome:) your always worth the words
It would seem a love unrequited, or at least, unappreciated. A love left to wander in the dark. Very nice piece

Unappreciated is how I'd explain it too. Thank you so much for reading this one and appreciating.
You find phrases born from thoughts most can't understand or ever will, Ever beautiful, mysterious, meaningful yet beyond range for us mere mortals. You sense what might be the right way to think and be but - leave open a route to... whereverr the answer lies, hidden.. waiting - love or loveless, a remedy to cure all need. Perhaps?

The desire to be noticed, caught up, the center of someone else storm, its a definite bipolar moment in time, euphoric one minute at the possibility, and manic when the intentions just aren't there. Really sad tone and reticent pacing. Great work.

Delicate but carries the heat and intensity of longing. Your phrases create that mood effortlessly! I must say some of your phrases are very unique. Beautiful read. Many mahalo.
