How I (tried) to love you

At a distance
More than miles between us
My touch cool,
No singe of banked fires
Playfully probing
Whimsy like a whiff of lavender
Caught on the way to all that demanded of you
Forever more than you could give.
Testing the bars of your prison
Searching for the key
To un-manacle
Dive and bring up
Deeper than those roiling waters
Your mislaid heart.
In snippets
Shredded flowers tossed at your
I gave
if not
my best
Something akin
to love
Alas, no alchemy
Can revive
Ophelia-like, you float past
In the haze
A hairsbreadth out of reach.
