I Long

I long for a love that is soul deep in it’s depth.
Death defying and joyous.
I long for an understanding
Unconditional love.
I long.
I long for quiet comfortable mornings
Listening to the rustle of life in the sheets next to me
I long for whispers filled with your smile
And the feeling that facing the day,
Facing life, is possible
As long as you are by my side
I long.
I long for a love that can see the darkness lurking beneath my skin
Fighting for possession of my mind
I long for a love that can learn
To love me
Scars and darkness and all
But longing leaves me hollow
For even in my longings,
You are faceless.

The smell of you lingers in the air
Floating listlessly like a feather captured on a breeze
I can feel the whisper of your lips at my throat
And the ghost of your thumb on my lips
It’s a promise of tangled limbs
Of tangled sighs
And I need more
