Watched

It’s not made of matter
More like the feeling of being watched
The feeling of an empty hand on your shoulder with no warmth and no touch
Like the feeling that I’m missing something
And that things could have been different

Passing names

In all the passing names I’ve been called
I’ve never been called that
That little something that lingers on the lips
Chips by the tip of your tongue
Touch it, but never quite make it
Like food that you can taste without sustenance
Because you hate the fact that you can’t swallow
What deep down in the pit of your stomach, under the vine leaves,
Might be called the truth
