Phantoms

Phantom:
Something elusive or delusive. An image appearing only in the mind. An illusion.
Perhaps…the illusion of love.
~~~

Phantom pain:
The feeling of pain in a body part or appendage that no longer exists or has been amputated. Perhaps…the feeling of pain in a heart that has been ripped out of the soul.

he knows
her faithless way
and still he loves

~~~

she knows
the heart she fractured
she stays just out of reach

~~~

they know
there is nothing left
but phantom pain
