By Annie Shepherd for The Parisian Post.
* * *
I wait beyond your fenced domain
watching the curve in your neck, the hesitant step
as you walk in your redefined world.
I watch for a wayward glance when you pass me
feel your shape in the shadow you cast on me
listen for a silent summons
follow the scent you shed in your wake
and learn how love cannot be defined.
