LongingA Poem by He@ther!
I wrote this for someone that I love very much.
Sheets of satin are encasing
vessels of beauty lie, waiting
intricate glass is stained red,
stasis in time, thirsty
identical black locks
the same snow-colored skin
sand slips through the glass
falling, endlessly, without time
it fills the space inside,
weighs it down.
the breath is getting shallow.
it scrapes together, they grate each other so.
tiny, miniscule molecules. soft to the touch
but as a dull knife to the organs.
remove the space between,
expel what does not belong.
replace breathlessness with fresh air,
with that pure substance that is you.
replace longing with that
large vessel for which I thirst.
replace this vapid atmosphere
with the scent of your skin
replace my pillow with your chest,
let insomnia disperse.
waves of sound calm the storm,
appeasing until you return.
I love you, therefore worry no more.
but replace the emptiness
with a feast of the senses.
