Adrift

We didn’t talk much in school

I wonder:
Was I just too aloof
or were you too shy?

Now I feel shipwrecked and adrift
in the bottomless ocean of time between us

I am befuddled, disoriented and embarrassed
not knowing where you’ve been
not knowing what you’ve done
your likes, your dislikes
your trials, your victories
your passions, your loves

Not knowing the first thing about you:
questions flood my mind – my head spins
as I endlessly shuffle blank memories
in the fragmented mosaic of your life
