“difficile est longum subito deponere amorem” ~ Catullus

“the ghost of you comes at strange hours” by Nan Lehnert

a poem from my series inspired by latin phrases…

“difficile est longum subito deponere amorem” –  Catullus

(it is difficult to suddenly relinquish a long cherished love)

the ghost of you comes

at strange hours

grabs my wrists

pins my body

presses its face near mine

exhales its sweet breath

warming my skin

fixed, we remain

ethereally bonded

an invisible union

always inches from touch
