Longing. A poem.

The loving and the longing
soaked into heart and soul.
Sponges wrung at a moment’s notice,
all captured in a bucket
and mopped across the entirety
of my empty little world.

Here loving words are written
on lonely pages in electric cursive,
tempting fate with imagery
born of perceptive symbiosis.
Singular takes on whole new meaning,
along with didactic metaphors.

I would douse this pain with you,
but you’re so far away;
an unearthly, flowering oasis
in the unimaginable distance.

And my mouth is so dry.
And still longing to drink of you.

My first book of poetry, The All or the Nothing, is available now as an e-book from most online distributors. To find out more, click here.
