poem


I'm wanting

Always wanting now

You

Always you

More with every sigh

I heave

And every silence

Leaving me lonely

Tears to soak my pillow

In a bed

That's too big just for me

You're here

But you're not

When I'm wanting

You

When will I stop

Wanting

Waiting

Eternity

To feel you

Taste your skin

And kiss your lips

Maybe you'd have

More to say to me then

More than you do now

The quiet is killing me

I'm starving

Lonely

Without your voice

I'm left

Awake

Listening

To you dream

Left

With the ache

The wanting

That steals

My breath...
