Longing

Longing

A Poem by [email protected]!
"

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

...........drenched..........


identical black locks

the same snow-colored skin

kindred eyes


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.
