“The Mirror Between Us” (Rumi)

The mirror between us is breath-mist when I speak. Your face in water. I reach. The work grows muddy.

Even friend and beloved are wrong words for this. Even ahhhhhh retreats back into my mouth.

The same if the moon’s behind cloud or being released. A pure silent look is better.
