Imaginary Lover

Advent Poems Day Twenty-Four

the cold and the comfortable

The Cold and the Comfortable by Greg Mackie

 

Ursula

In the middle of her life

Fell in love

Nurtured by every breath

Every dream

Every sigh

She sat

On a park bench

Rearranging her imaginary life

Her perfect man

Her ideal puppet

She wrote a lover into being

One day

Not quite believing

Whom she was seeing

He sat down beside her
