"Still Here, Searching for You"

Still Here, Searching for You
I'm frozen
suspended in time
wishing praying
hoping to catch
the slightest glimmer
of your eyes glinting
above your lips
as you float by

The hours dissolve
into days and nights
and I remain
unable to thaw
to shiver
or cry out
the perennial prisoner
locked deep
within the
ice-crusted walls
of his own skin
