Only a Figment of Friendship

 

Only a Figment of Friendship

By Te’Kia Miller

I have missed you precious friend
Though… I thought I heard
Your voice whispered in the wind.
Must have been only a figment.
Just like times when we splashed
And splayed in pools of the sun
We were hyenas in the streets
Or horses running wildly even,
Galloping on spoke wheels of ten-speeds.
Must have all been a figment.
We translated stars into dreams
Stitching realities in this surreality
And empires raised before our eyes
Gave us exponential possibilities;
We did believe once.
Must have all been a figment.
Taking on new constructs
We live in time lost and expanse of distance,
Trying hard not to reminisce
All those figments.
Still there is something real
Pulling through the space life made
Keeping us tied at the soul,
Or, maybe…
It was all just a figment
Of imaginations conjuring.

Original. 2016.
