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
