You called

You called for me
and I came.
I took off my shirt,
I kicked off my shoes
and barefoot I walked through the fields.
It was very dark
and I was so cold,
but you called for me
and I had to come.
Then, when I reached you,
you turned away,
looking at something only you saw.
I said “I am here”
and you said “I am not”.
Ashamed I returned
to my hidden chamber,
waiting for you
to call for me again.
