I’d forgotten how it felt,
That gentle caress of your lips,
Brushing against my soul.
Those shy, sideward glances in crowded rooms,
As you touched me with the whispers of promises
To hold me in your heart in this lifetime,
And many more to come.
The dreams you weaved for the two of us,
As we lay in one another’s arms through rainy nights.
To wake with my breath mingled with yours,
Fingers entwined, frightened to let go,
Ecstatic sensations, our skins touched ever so slightly,
Nights When you desired me so.
The mind slowly ceases
to recall the beauty of those days,
When a second apart was too much to bear.
Where that emptiness arose in our life,
I fail to know,
how you drifted from my life and ceased to care.
You declared a love for me so strong,
Yet you choose now to live so far away.
No room is left in your crowded heart
As others have made a home there today,
So here I stand alone yearning from afar.
With memories of a love so true,
that has cruelly welded a burning scar
with a broken bridge left between me and you.
